Photograph of a view of an unidentified street in Amador, showing the Imperial Hotel and American Mercantile Company, ca.1930. Two long, squat buildings are shown behind trees along the left side of the street the cuts across the image in the foreground: the leftmost building is the Imperial Hotel and brandishes its name in a display window on the first floor. Farther down and separated from the hotel by a section of picket fence, the American Mercantile Company Building can be seen, its second-floor balcony jutting past the tree foliage. The American Mercantile Company was operated by Chieizola Julius in 1850. The Imperial Hotel at left was built in 1852.
