|Bob Dawson, 5th District Councilwoman Sharyn Tallman, and Jim Dawson visit Quincy Street and the newly named Dawson Alley, on August 20, 2005. The Dawson home at 1219 Quincy stood adjacent to "the alley" - as it was always called before the recent rechristening - until the house was torn down in 1955. (Thanks to Sharyn Tallman for all her efforts on behalf of Dawson Alley.)|

|In the early 1950s Jim stands at roughly the same spot on Quincy and present-day Dawson Alley as in the photo at the top of this page.||Bob Dawson stands in what is now Dawson Alley in 1953. The white garage directly to the right is the only building still standing. The pointed garage down the alley toward Avery belonged to the Savage house.||Opposite view: Looking east toward Quincy. The houses across Quincy were torn down in the 1960s and replaced by the Greenbrier Apartments.|
"To that great list of alleys--Tin Pan Alley, Allen's Alley, Creeque Alley, Nightmare Alley, Tornado Alley, Gasoline Alley, Kirstie Alley, and Alley Oop--may we now add this new mini-avenue of dreams, Dawson Alley!"--Jim Dawson, 2005
