Frederick 1948

Downtown Frederick, Oklahoma, 1948

Downtown Frederick in the '40s

     The photo above was taken in downtown Frederick in the late 1940s.

     Although the photo is undated, the car models and date of that year's Tillman County Fair (September 8, 9, 10, and 11) indicate that the year was probably 1948.

     The photographer's vantage point was the intersection of Ninth Street and Grand Avenue, looking eastward to a view of businesses in the 100 block of West Grand.

     Downtown Frederick was a busy place in those days.
