Wow.........a LOT of people on that street. Wonder if that was normal or was there some sort of event/celebration going on?

A run on the bank? I see several cars indicating '29 to '30 ish. Several model A Fords in there. The crowds seem to be going both ways into the State Bank.

Wayne might be right. Rice Lake is a resort town in northern WI lake country, but it doesn't look like a celebration of any sort.

There was a bank hold up in 1930 At the Silver State Bank. So maybe this is the town reacting

Anyone have a shot of that intersection today? Would be nice to see what it looks like now.

No one appears to be dressed for a celebration - lots of work clothes/work jackets.

Lots of criminal activity about that time period and many Chicago folks vacationed in the area. Some of the farms had hid-a-way places too. Wayne may be right too.

The big bore 'new' Henry rifles are made in Rice Lake now. I haven't used one, but I know my son's .22 made in Bayonne, NJ is a work of metal art. I imagine the WI ones should be the same.

jk

Henry rifles made in Wisconsin? Very nice. On my "to do" list.
Ever shot that 45-70 Bud? I 'spect not as it's far too gorgeous. I mean that in the right way. :-)
I shot a stainless 45-70 pistol made in Minneapolis. My buddy sold it before I even had a chance... Ugh.
Baallaam! Not at all like the buddy's 9 mil. Whack!
What a great picture Jay! Thank you!

Jay - Great historic photo of Rice Lake, Wisconsin!

Kinda' "OT" comment here, but since "Henry Rifles" was brought up......

I retired in 2002 from the Union Pacific RR Police Dept. in 2002 as a Seattle Sr. Special Agent, and accordingly, when the "Railroad Edition" of the "Tribute" series .22 cal Henry Rifles came out, my wife insisted that I had to have one! It was certainly what I consider to be a rather extravagant and probably unnecessary expenditure, however, that rifle is a real "jewel" and a piece that I am proud to own as what will surely become a family heirloom!
....and to keep this post somewhat "Model T", I should add that it is also due to my wife's "insistence" that I own more than one Model T Ford! (....she loves the ol' "flivvers" as much as I do). One of the single guys in our local "T" club wanted to know if she has a sister!!! (:^) .....harold

Observation - did you ever notice that in many old photos of street scenes the cars are all angle parked? It was that way in the town I grew up in and in the little towns around me now. In modern times, all those places have parallel parking. I wonder if it was a holdover from the horse and buggy days? There was no such thing as parallel parking a buggy....
