Neat photo ! We can see that the local telephone exchange was in the upper floor of the
bank building on the far corner of the next block on right, and that this line was likely a main
line for a large local company or AM TEL & TEL, while on the close side of the street we
see a real Mom-n-Pop operation that probably did not extend terribly far outside this small
town. No power visible at this time. The courthouse/school on the hill west of town has
since received a sad "update" to match much of the downtown area we see.
