This photograph provides a close look at 19th century city structure. A street sign on a lamppost is just visible in the left corner of the photograph, telling that it was taken on the corner of "Harrison Av." A few men and women are depicted standing outside the buildings, and two wagons are parked on the street. The streets are empty, suggesting that this photograph was taken early in the day.
