    This was originally the Cobbs Country Restaurant & Gift Shoppe, which opened in 1966 and featured a service station. Later on it became Chinese restaurant The Red Dragon, and eventually demolished in 2014 where the property remains vacant today.

    From what I read, the round water tank was built as part of the same projects that brought Colonial Village Mall. The tank was a new reservoir meant to increase water supply to that portion of Rockford. Today, the tank is gone. A bunch of trees stand in its place.

    The small commercial building on the bottom corner virtually has remained untouched; it is exactly the same today, but it is vacant. The shell station has been replaced with the "Fireworks" store. The Alpine Grade School has been demolished and replaced with CVS Pharmacy. The basic traffic signals seen in the photo have been changed entirely. ( Obviously. )

    The Mobil Station seen in the middle of the photo was, at one point, demolished entirely and replaced with "Heritage Credit Union".Heritage is still here today but was remodeled twice; the first around 2012 (previously, it was a very basic gray building) and the second in 2019, when the color scheme was changed to use blue and white colors.

    The Shell Station on the bottom left corner remained in operation until around the early 2000s. During this time period, however, it had been upgraded to utilize two large modern-day "shelters" for the pump area, as opposed to the usage of the three small pump stations seen in this photo. It was demolished entirely in 2011 and replaced with a modern commercial building with two stores.

    The building was torn down completely in 2015 and rebuilt in a completely different style that is considered "less outdated".
