The “Other” Main Streets: From Pep Boys to Doughboys (Part 3)

Today we begin our tour of North Main Street (see Part 1, Part 2).

Paddock Viaduct (1914) and courthouse (1895).

View from the Paddock Viaduct toward the confluence of the Clear and the West forks of the Trinity River.

Detail of the North Fort Worth Police Department building (1913).

Detail of 2411 North Main (1920). From 1920 to 1933 the building housed a Piggly Wiggly grocery store. Note the brickwork above the windows.

Well-preserved ghost sign on the alley wall of the Maverick Hotel (1906) at Exchange Avenue.

Bricks and the Thannisch Block Building (1913) at Exchange Avenue.

Detail of the Auto Tire and Top Building (1929).

Soon North Main will have a triplex drive-in theater next to LaGrave Field. The three screens are already up. (Yes, I have superimposed a suggestion for the opening night movie.)
