Main Street - 1904 #3
1904 – Main Ave – west side north of First St .. First street is now known as Central Avenue. On the northwest corner, (according to the insurance maps was a bank, Second National Bank, later known as First National Bank. The original bank was not as large as it is today. Just to the west between the bank and the alley were office buildings with a print shop. On the west side of the alley was the Union Hotel. To the north of the bank was a meat shop then an office building followed by a barber shop and jewelry store. Next, in the area of the Soo Line Depot, came a pool hall, men’s clothing store and a drug store. It appears as though a tailor shop was right next to the tracks.
