Photo 15-PIO-34


Downtown Ladora. You can see the old bank building, the barber shop, cafe, Ike's pool hall, the elevator, etc. The bank building was empty many years with different businesses located there occasionally. It now houses the Ladora Bank Bistro. Sadly few other of these buildings remain. Over the railroad track to the right you can see wooden steps that used to lead uptown. Up the street on the left at the top of the photo you can make out the bottom of the methodist church which is still in Ladora. You can even see my house in this shot.
