The attached link to the Milwaukee Public Library Historic Photo Archive shows the corner of Murray and Thomas in the early 1950’s. http://content.mpl.org/cdm4/item_viewer.php?CISOROOT=/HstoricPho&CISOPTR=4880&CISOBOX=1&REC=1 Does anyone know if the building shown is the Murray Theater? An A&P is to the south and then the bank, now US Bank.
