  • David I agree with you that this picture appears to be at the corner of Deery and East Lane. The reason I say that is that the house in the left of the picture (with the red colorized fence)looks similar to the one that was there in the 40s and 50s, and maybe even later than that.

  • Shelbyville looks like a nice town years ago. what has happened to our city? We used to have nice curbs and sidewalks also Our codes dept. just let our city go to H--- Does any one care to speak out or bury their heads under and hope not to offend someone. Your family will have to live here and clean up our mess

  • Gary, you are right about the codes, but they are not the only ones to blame, how about the industry that brought in all the illegals? To me they are the ones who have played a big part in destroying our city. I wish they had never come here as they concenetrate more or hiring Mexicans and Somalians than local people. I don't think this is right and don't buy their products.
