The Valley Garage, Valley Hardware, Machine Shop

The back of the Valley garage in the 1930s on the north side of east 1st St. "Aylward? & Phillips, Prop."
 This building is still there, but is vacant awaiting redevelopment (Update: it was torn down ~Sept 2004).  This view can be seen from the temporary ACE parking lot on Railroad (now also gone).
