You're looking West on west 2nd.
That's Maysville's Mayor Thomas M. Russell
at the wheel, for sure.  He bought it on August 5, 1902.
We've read that this was the very first car in
Kentucky.  Maybe . . .
J. T. Kackley and his daughter,
on Second Street, c. 1902
Kackley is an important figure to these pages,
since he was a prolific publisher of
early Maysville postcards. 
 He sold bikes on 2nd Street , too.
