So much going on

There is such a tremendous amount of human activity in the lower right quadrant of this scene: the man eyeing us at the corner of the curb with one foot on the sewer opening; the three derbied cronies; the bustle of female motion at the very centre, observed by the man at the lampost with dismay; the man with the cigar at the doorway of the shop, cutting a figure for all eternity; and the intense fellow under the Plug Tobacco sign, holding a mystery object for a mystery purpose. He may even be drawing the attention of the policeman off to the left in the middle of the street (sporting one of those under-the-coat torso bulges so common in Shorpy cops).

Dr Clark

Dr C G Clark was born Cyrenas George Clark in Maine on November 14th 1832, he married Harriet McNeese (b 1842 Pennslyvania) in 1862, they appear to have at least one child George Wentworth (b 1884)
Two years after this photo, Harriet died followed in 1910 by the good Doctor.

United Cigar Stores

Ubiquitous in the cities of my childhood (there were once almost 3000 of them), later merged with Whelan's Drugs, now disappeared as our fashions in poisoning ourselves have evolved.
