Nicolet Blvd

As another one in a series of postcards/photographs of what was formerly known as "The Avenue," this one from the 1920's gives more exposure to the Menasha side.  Since we've seen this theme over and over, I suspect the postcard peddlers were enamored with the "street as borderline" aspect of this photo.  Plus it makes for a pretty composition.

Visible through the trees is St.Patrick's Catholic Church and the Walter Brothers Brewery.
