Photograph of a view of Main Street (or Los Angeles Street?), looking north, just south of Center Street, ca.1902. Several buckboards and carriages with horses are visible along with pedestrians on street. Numerous signs are visible naming merchants and businesses, including Back's buildings. Power poles can be seen, as well as a hanging street lamp at center. Planter's Hotel was replaced on the northwest corner of Los Angeles and Center gives some indication of the date. A large tree to the left of center is at the approximate intersection at Cypress, just beyond Chinatown and Anaheim Bakery. "At the turn of the century, thirty years after the subdivision of the Stearns Tract made it a center of real estate activity." -- unknown author.; Legible signs include: "[...]nbros", "Pacific lodging house", "Moore's stoves and [...]ngles", "the place for good shoes", "S.
