What's Dat?

What are those tall, cylindrical-looking things we see looking straight down the street?

Where are the ladies?

Wait - I saw one: lower far right. Still, kind of odd there aren't more.


I see only one woman in the whole photo. Must be close to supper time and they are all at home, rattling the pots and pans.

High anxiety

Even in 1910, there's got to be a better way to wash a window!

One Headlight

That car will never pass inspection.

Battle House Still Kicking

as a beautiful hotel. This gallery shows lots of details, including a 360 view of the spectacular lobby.

Distro ring

Also known as the round cross arm. Must have been for telephone. The insulators dont look big enough for power transmission.

Street View - looks like the Battle House Hotel (on left) is the only building that's the same.
