“In 1953 or 1954 there was a bank on Texas Avenue, just past Linwood Avenue about 2 blocks past the West End Theater. I was either 8 or 9 when my mother and I happened upon the aftermath of a bank robber having been shot and killed. A large crowd had gathered around, blood was running down the street and the robber had been covered over with newspapers.” ….Billy Smith
