#FlashbackFriday with the Historical Society: Early 1900’s Downtown

It’s time again for #FlashbackFriday with the Whitewater Historical Society!

Here is another shot from downtown looking eastwards on Main Street. It was probably taken in the early 1900s. This was a period of transition for Whitewater, especially in terms of transportation and technological advancement. Notice that while the road is still dirt and has a line of horse-drawn buggies, there is also an early automobile pictured, as well as electrical poles lining the street.​

Join us next week for more from the Whitewater Historical Society collections!
