Kevin Hooker sent this email for Photo 253My father-in-law, Don Wood, is a retired photographer from the Madison Courier and a longtime resident of Madison. He wrote: “The address is 201 E. Main Street. The building still stands but the façade has been radically altered. It’s current occupant is the Barlow Law Office. I checked with my friends at the Madison Museum and they believe the photo to have been taken sometime in the early 1950s.”
