111 South Mangum 01.66

Below, looking north from the tracks on Mangum St., you can see the mix of brick structures replacing the earlier wood, frame structures. The Italianiate window style (curved at the top) on the brick building would be a repeated architectural element in this block. This picture predates the construction of the Citizens' Bank on the southeast corner of Mangum and Main; the brick building on the right side of the street near the end of the block in this view would be replaced by Citizens.

Looking north, 1905.

This shot is all I can get from the 1920s, and only some of that repeated Italianate window pattern is visible, sort of peeking through in the right-middle portion of the shot. The leftmost portion of this is the only pre-facade change photo of 111 S. Mangum I have.

In 1919, WP Perry Transfer and Storage was at this location; by 1923, the Durham Sun had expanded from next door at 109 to take this building. They would move within the following year to East Main Street.

The following series of shots show the block in 1966, where several of the buildings had been converted to a stark, modernist style.

109-111 S. Mangum. Pardon the distorion in the upper right - I merged two old photos that were never intended for merging. The modern building was likely the Italianate building in the 1905 shot.

These buildings were urban renewal-ized in 1968, and this land became the western end of the Church St. parking deck.
