The Way it Was: Main Street in December 1934

Downtown La Crosse in December 1934

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.

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.

Anyone with more information about this photo or wishing to donate photos of the Coulee Region may call the La Crosse Public Library Archives at 608-789-7136.
