The small building behind the buildings that burned, and the the last building on the right were replaced by the Daisy Lane laundromat which later was torn down to create a parking lot for Ebsco. The Flying A station was at the corner, later rebranded the Getty station and now a Richdale store.The only thing that looks the same is on the far left, the single floor building where Zumi’s coffee is now.
