Looking Up

Russ's post below with the side-by-side comparisons of Springfield then and now reminded me of how much better the Old Capitol Mall looks today than it did a couple of decades ago. With so many sections of Springfield headed in the opposite direction (South MacArthur from South Grand to Town & Country shopping center is one example of a stretch that has declined precipitously; East Cook is another), what areas of Springfield are much improved from the '60s or '70s?

This might also give Russ some more ideas for side-by-side photo comparisons.
