Glam-o-Rama Cleaners
Dunn, NC
Police Department
Chapel Hill, NC
This Glam-o-Rama Cleaners appears to be from the 1950s or 1960s. It is part of a chain but I don't think any of the other locations have buildings or signs like this. [map]

This Police Department building appears to be from the 1960s or 1970s. Does anyone know more about it? [map]

J.S. Dorton Arena
Raleigh, NC
The J.S. Dorton Arena is located at the State Fairgrounds. It was originally known as the Livestock Judging Pavilion. The building was designed by Matthew Novicki in 1950 and completed in 1952. It claims to have the world's first column-free roof. The building was renamed the Dorton Arena in 1961. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. For more, see this website. [map]
