Streetcar A Comin'
The above downtown view dates between 1905 and 1910- the Hotel Menasha being built in 1905 and the street being paved in 1910. Notice that the storefront at Milwaukee and Main says "Theatre," the first instance I've seen of that. In later years, the location will be the Schultz Brothers drug store, lasting until the late 1940's. We explored the interior of that store in this blog post: http://menashabook.blogspot.com/2014/07/schultz-drug-store.html . In my boyhood, the location was the office of Menasha Utilities.
