Artists have taken over Center Street! The smocks and berets are a dead giveaway. The famous Art Corner in Tomorrowland closed in 1966, but there was a short-lived Main Street location as well. I don't have much information about it, but I can only assume that this was part of it. Since the date of this slide is 1960, they must have coexisted for a while. Several years ago, Howard Lowery auctioned off the sign that hung outside the Main Street location, what a great item. Any info about "the other Art Corner" would be appreciated!
Business looks slow, doesn't anybody want their portrait drawn in genuine pastels? It's interesting to see what was being sold...you could buy large paintings of the Chicken of the Sea pirate ship, Fort Wilderness, an Indian brave, or the Flower Mart (which was still on West Center Street, I assume). They are not exactly great art! But I sure would love to find one of them in a thrift shop. You know they just have to be out there.
