Old Wagon yard, farmer’s market

How many of you all have been to a farmer’s market?  The photo group here is taken at a location that used to be called the “Old Wagon Yard” and that is exactly what Robert Falkner titled the envelope of negatives.  If you haven’t guessed where this is, well it has a couple of different uses in present time.  The north west corner of East Elm Street and South Fannin Street where the present Tyler Fire Station #1 is located and the rest of this city block is occupied by the Smith County jail.

Also, for those of you that think the building in the background looks familiar–well it does because, it is still there (just modernized with a new “face”)
