Looking East

Likely taken the same day as our westerly view of downtown from yesterday, we now present a view to the east, circa 1927.  Two years removed from the Great Crash of '29 and the depression that will follow, the topics of note later that year, and the rest of the world, will be Lindbergh's solo crossing of the Atlantic and the advent of talking motion pictures. 

From History of the Fox River Valley, Lake Winnebago & the Green Bay Region, Hon. Wm. A. Titus, Editor, Volume I-III, Chicago, S.J. Clarke Pub. Co., 1930
