Looking West & Main Street, 1883
Same Scene as above, but shows a little more on the right
East Side of Court House, from Main, 1883
This is one of the more remarkable postcard scenes
we've ever seen. Please note a man in
mid-air, who has apparently jumped from the building. It's been suggested to us
that he may be on a wire strung between buildings. Anybody know details??
