The streets of old Fulton

Photographs of old Fulton, first posted in 2010, got passed around again recently prompting a reader to send in this amazing set of undated photos of old Fulton. It’s still difficult to comprehend that an entire neighborhood was completely wiped off of the map.

The trees and clean sidewalks look better than parts of church hill and union hill today

Wow. What people would pay today for that sense of history & place…

When will we learn that large gov’t projects (e.g. Urban Renewal) often do greater harm than good ?!?

@Dear Neighbor: I was thinking the same thing myself. I’m ready to get back on the sidewalk and street tree crusade. Another dear neighbor (perhaps you) reminded me of the Love Your Block grants that would be perfect for this purpose. They are due April 21st!

@Houdon, I just saw the announcement for the Love Your Block grants, and agree that a sidewalk/street tree project would be great.

Lora and Houdon, I read the application guidelines. You need a minimum of 25 people, non-related, with a proven record of working together; they need to all live in the same council district; group does not need to be a non-profit (501c3) and I can’t remember a whole lot of other restrictions. I’d think that the Union Hill folks would have a really good chance of getting a grant – you’ve worked on the park and other projects – best of luck to you! I’ll look forward to hearing that your application won!

I have tried to find the locations of these pictures and most of them I have found. Two of them I cannot figure out, pictures Fulton-06 and Fulton-08. If anyone has any idea where they were, please let me know. I think I have an idea but I am very unsure.

Does anyone know where I could find old pics of church hill? I am very curious to see street scapes up around chimbo. I am very curious about the houses that were torn down on our street. Would love to see what it looked like before.
