Historical Pictorial

Front Street 1902

This view of Hancock’s Front Street, was probably taken from near the original Portage Lake Bridge, and looks NW. The house with the circular tower (center), just behind the scaffold street, still stands as a rooming house, and the church (right) is Dave’s Marathon, with the tower removed. The two buildings on the left have not survived. The photo is believed to have been taken in the Fall of 1902.
