This Day In History: March 25, 2004

Downtown Royal Oak has come a long way in the last seven years. Remember when the corner of Lincoln and Main was Erb Lumber? That was ages ago. That space is now occupied by a bank, but even that wasn't built over night.

Fifth street also saw its share of construction and changes, as evidenced by these bird's eye views through the second floor windows at Barnes & Noble:

The northwest corner still had some finishing touches needed before opening as the current day Noodles and Co.

Meanwhile, the fancy French restaurant, Bastone, was still mostly comprised of plywood at this point.
