Here it is colorized. I lived at 410 N. Main while in school there.
Judging from this it is South Main.
I have family in Pocatello, last names Kidd,(dads side) and Bopp, (moms side) Thanks guys.
Same spot today, Main Street and Lewis. The Kress building, next block on the right and the taller one just past it, survive as well as most in the far intersection.
Fargos and Western Union seem to have moved from the first building on the right. Station Square has moved in now.

Pocatello was a great railroad town and is the home of Idaho State University. A high school teacher told me it took most of the day to drive from Idaho Falls to "Poky" (50 miles) in a Model T. You could expect to patch a half a dozen tires.
In 1991 Pocatello's Tri-City Car Club hosted a stop for the Great American Race and was awarded Most Hospitable Town. We watched the Race go through and stop on Main street at about that spot or maybe a block farther North a few years later.
The Eastern Idaho Chapter of the MTFCA was formed their in 1966. Don Borchers was active there before he moved to Boise. This year he received the Walter Rosenthal award. 50 years of service.
Love the combination of the old time pic, colorized version & what it looks like today.
