|This is a picture of the corner of West High Street and South Oak Street in London. It shows the London Area Chamber of Commerce office, Greyhound bus station, Western Union office, and Maime Gorman’s Bar.
Stanley McVay, a resident of London, managed the bus station. Frank & Maime Gorman owned the bar; Maime ran the business after Frank’s death.
First National Bank purchased the land and shortly thereafter tore down the buildings down and erected a bank on the lot. The bank is now known as National City Bank.
This is one of the many pictures that were taken by the late Bill Holton.
Columnist Earl Ballenger is a resident of London. If you have an old photograph to share, call 740-852-0809.
