Local men standing in the middle of Broadway Street, sometime before the fire of 1924. Visible down the left side of the street is the pole for Champion's barber shop, the Eclipse Meat Market, and Semple's drug and jewelry store. The first entire building showing on the right is the Commercial hotel, where the great fire of 1924 began in a livery stable. Next to it is Reuben Tuplin's mercantile, which perished in the fire as well. (Historical Society).
