Main Street Looking West
With what looks like an unpaved Main Street, this photo is pre-1910, the year the street was paved. Looking west, it was likely taken from the roof of the Hotel Menasha or National Hotel. But the National Hotel had burned down in October 1901 and the new Hotel Menasha wasn't constructed until 1905. And because of the columns around the bank's door, which don't appear in earlier photos, I'd place this between 1905 and 1910.
