Then and Now, downtown Morocco, IN

On Saturday November 24th, 2012 we went to look around my wife’s old home town of Morocco, and Kentland, both in Newton County, in Indiana. I got to take some nice pictures, and co-ordinates to Waymark some of the town’s features.

This was partly because we had to drop her brother off at his home in Fowler, and partly because of an old postcard I had seen on Flickr, showing downtown Morocco, covered in snow, from about 1908. I asked my wife if the stores shown were still there, she recognized the location, but was unsure of the look of the area nowadays. I figured it would make a good “then and now” waymark, if nothing else.

These pictures were taken at the junction of State and Clay streets in downtown Morocco, Indiana. Taken from the south west corner, looking north east.
