A circa-'68 view of the west end of the West Plaza. An early 1950s-vintage "J.C. Penney Co." store is seen, as is the second location of the T.G. & Y. 5 & 10.

Let's date this image to around 1978. Obviously, the "J.C. Penney Co." store seen above has been updated with a new "JCPenney" nameplate.

A 1980s view of the West Plaza. The shopping hub is now known as DOWNTOWN TINKER PLAZA. Conrad-Marr Drug is still in business. A J.C. Penney nameplate is also -barely- visible in the background.
