: A view of Sandusky Avenue, Bucyrus, Ohio, ca. 1900. Visible are various storefronts on this busy street, along which stand horse-drawn buggies. Building and window signs identify the retail stores A.J. Salzer (dry goods); Rowe & Brothers (dry goods); and M. Baumoel (carpets and dry goods). A large sign on the roof of the building promotes "Emrich One-Price Clothier." In the far right of the photograph, a horse harnessed to an unseen buggy or wagon stands on the street next to Rowe & Brothers. Tall telephone or telegraph poles loom over the buildings. This photograph probably dates to around 1900. An image taken in 1908 shows streetcar tracks running down the middle Sandusky Avenue; in this image there are no tracks. A search of business listings in the Bucyrus city directories of this period indicates that all of the stores identified above were in business in 1900. View on Ohio Memory.
