Scene on Webster Street

This image of the intersection of Main and Webster Streets was probably taken around 1913.

The building on the right is the Northwestern Hotel, located where Mound City Bank stands today.

The building on the left was likely a tavern when this photo was taken, and it is now occupied by Hindu's Corner Bar. There is a pool room and blacksmith shop behind the tavern, and enlarging the image reveals an advertisement for Old Virginia Cheroots (cigars) on the side of the pool room.
