Thanks to an overzealous local postmaster, streets going north-south were re-numbered in the 1940s. It did make a little sense - numbers ascended as you moved north toward the Tennessee River. The city was growing south, some it had to be done becasue either numbers would have gone into negatives or the street would have to be re-named in the southern part of the town. Bt it does make it difficult to locate places from the pre-1940s.

The address is incorrect. The Delite was a block or so farther north on Second Avenue, if I remember correctly.

Like the Elite Theatre, this site no longer exists. The property on either side of this address now house and elementary school and the Decatur Municipal Public Works (Transportation) Dept.
