Tracks Receding

This photo postcard has seen better days but it's a great snapshot in time.  Is the walking man going to wait for the interurban?  Perhaps he has business at the First National Bank across the street.  Is he a guest at the Hotel Menasha?  

Dated between 1910 and 1927, this photo displays a prosperity that only a few decades before was marked by a dirt street and horsedrawn wagons. The modern age had arrived.
