Found on EBay

Here are a couple of interesting items on EBay, both related to Main Street (shout out to Bukowski Square! Let’s make it official).


First, the Milano Cafe, 166 N. Main.

And here’s a shot of Main and 3rd.

It’s a bit difficult to be certain because of the low resolution, but notice a few things: It looks as though Main Street hasn’t been paved, which occurred roughly in the 1890s. And note the various modes of transportation: horses, streetcars, several bicycles and pedestrians. Also note the early style of street lamps. Finally, notice that the building on the far right has fire escapes while the building in the center apparently doesn’t.
