Title: Monroe Street
Description: View from intersection of businesses along the left side of Monroe Street. A group of men are standing at the door of the drugstore on the corner, which has an awning that reads: "E.D. Whipple, Druggist." A woman is standing in the doorway of Wendts Restaurant, and a young boy or man stands on the sidewalk. Horses and buggies and wagons are parked along the curb. Other businesses include an attorney, a notary public and a shoe store. Light bulbs are strung up and across the power lines on the left to form what appears to be an arch.
