Downtown Parade1093 viewsThis is Main Street at the 10th Street intersection in the early 1900's. There was really no landscaping in front of the Lane House (the building where Taco Loco is today), those are small freshly-cut redwood trees brought in from the woods just for the occasion. If you look closely at the ones in front of the Friedenbach Brothers store you'll see they are nailed to the sidewalk. That big two-story building on the right was the grade school at the corner of Main and 8th Streets.
