Cuba City's early days


A view of some sort of celebration on Main Street in the late 1800s. The photograph was shot looking north. Immediately on the right is the Northwestern Hotel (site of Mound City Bank today). North of that is the hardware store of H. H. Fiedler (Hindu's Corner Bar today). The sign on Fiedler's reads:

H. H. FIEDLER
HARDWARE, STOVES
& TINWARE
SPORTING GOODS

  2. It's good to see an early photo of my home as a very young child - the old Northwestern Hotel. It looked quite different in the middle 1940s when I lived there.
