Police officer or firefighter astride a large horse on South Park Street while he holds the reins of another horse. The photo, circa 1895, shows the row of businesses along the street, west to east. The old Presbyterian Church, easily one of the city's tallest buildings, sits at the end of the street. A grocery, probably Angle's, sits in the right foreground, its striped awning advertising "Sanborn's Coffee."
