I drive through Lake Shore everyday (down blanding) to get downtown. I have always been curious about the history of the business district buildings. They indeed do look as if there is history there. That old fire truck that sits outside a business is pretty cool too. Would be curious to get more info about that truck.

I hope we eventually see a "lane diet" for San Juan and Blanding.
These signals and those at the Wabash-Birkenhead/ RR Xing at Roosevelt Square as well as those at SanJuan and Cassat will be the last to be replaced in the area, after the west end of San Juan near Hugh Edwards and Jammes.
Park/Cassat and LSblvd@Blanding have been updated as an included element of previous local work.
The replacement of the SanJuan bridge over the Cedar River is not yet eminent_but is planned.
I cannot find solid info regarding this project. i.e. widening of the bridge to include a central turn lane versus dollar$ spent installing medians on SanJuan from Lane Ave to Hamilton etc.
This bridge replacement is years away but I would still hope to find other like-minded individuals who want answers as I do.

Mrs.Grace Rogers,founder of Pier 17 Ships Store pioneered Lakeshore-her house on the water at 3030 Lakeshore Blvd. originally fronted on a dirt road.

At one time Grace and her husband owned all of the land from the current Pier 17 building on back in to the water where Saddler Point Boatyard is located today.

Grace passed away recently.

Wow, my dad just told me last night about her passing.  As a kid we used to call her Dragon Lady.... I dont know why though.  We used to frequently ride our bikes up to Pier 17 to get various items before taking the boat out waterskiing almost every Summer afternoon.
