Looking east from the sidewalk in front of the rectory for St. Joseph’s Cathedral at 530 Main St. on Dec. 4, 1934.
This photo was taken by the City Building and Inspection Department, probably due to concerns with the icy sidewalk shown here.
You have free articles remaining.
Buildings of interest in the photo are the cottage style gas station (center) on the southeast corner of Sixth and Main streets, and the steeple of the old First Congregational Church at Seventh and Main streets. The gas station was razed in 1941 while the steeple of the church was removed in 1950 followed by the razing of the church in 1953.
