It’s the big shopping day - high noon on Saturday.

Well, no. Probably early Sunday morning from the looks of it. This is taken from a large panorama, probably taken from the roof of the Cole hotel. The names won’t change for decades - Luger Furniture, Alex Stern Clothiers. The building on the left on the north side of the tracks is doomed, due to be demolished for a hotel. Right along the railroad. Ideally situated for the harried traveler, perhaps, but good luck sleeping through one of those beasts blasting through town.

The ring in the middle of the street is interesting. It’s either a fountain that would be later turned into something else, or the base of the thing they were building. As you’ll see in a few pages.
