22. Unnamed Car Lot across from Lew Williams & behind Auto Center,

Unnamed Car Lot across from Lew Williams & behind Auto Center, this was a used car lot with a variety of names in 1960s, eventually ending up partly Lew Williams used car lot as I guess Lew Williams had lots of used cars they could no longer fit on the west side of big lot. If you look at partly obscured #18E..that is Lew Williams USED Car lot Jetsons type mini building. Well this used car lot on Port sort of made lots of sense. At night they had cool looking strands of edison type lights and rows and rows of flags flapping in breeze. You felt comfortable there, even when CLOSED, so we would ride bikes thru there checking out some barely used cars. At the back fence was "secret trail" as several vertical wood fence pieces were missing, so we could go basically from the car lot, thru high overgrown little field, directly onto Missouri Pacific railroad tracks. Yea, we though the secret way was cool.
