Notes View of Main Street south from the intersection of Algoma and Washington toward the Main Street bridge, taken by Wisconsin Public Service. It shows the new street lights in place after installation in the winter of 1936 & 1937. This image was taken at night to illustrate the difference between the old and new lights. None of the buildings on the block at right are standing and only three buildings further down past High still exist. Few of the buildings on the left are still standing.
