Fourth Street, 1910s

Several previous posts have featured photos from Fourth Street (now Highway 160).  The following photo shows a gentleman whose identity is unknown, but who is obviously very well dressed, standing on Fourth Street in the 1910s.  That date is reasonably certain because of the album from which the photo was taken.

This photo is roughly contemporary with the photo on the header of this site and with the first photo in the 1/30/08 post which shows two people standing at the south entrance to the railroad depot.  The buildings in the background face the railroad, as did most of the early commercial buildings in Bradley.  It is difficult to discern, but there is no structure at all on the half-block behind the building at left, which would be where Coker Hardware is now located, and upon which a row of several buildings was later built and also demolished.

This photo is an almost 180–degree opposite view of Fourth Street from the photo in the post of 2/11/08.  The tinted photo of the kneeling man and his dog in that post was taken about 20 years later than this photo, however.

This photo is obviously, judging by the man’s shadow, taken in the late morning.  Below is a photo taken from approximately the same place and angle in the late morning of March 22, 2008.
