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."
In 1911, a large crowd gathers on the lawn at St. Peters to watch laying of the cornerstone at the church. The cornerstone is visible resting on a row of large stone blocks. A group of men and boys in liturgical clothing stand next to the cornerstone. Overhead, the beginnings of the structure are taking shape.

Ford's grand downtown home--to the right of the Ford Flats, the International Order of Odd Fellows Hall.
