Photograph of Spring Street looking north from just south of Seventh Street, 1913. Very prominent within the middle of the street is a street car carrying a load of passengers. A network of utility lines run overhead. Men, carrying parcels or briefcases, stroll along the sidewalk or cross the street. At left, a small construction crew works around a winch erected over a hole dug through the sidewalk. Several horse-drawn carriages and a few early automobiles drive along the street or are parked along the curb. The buildings range in size from two- to more than ten-stories. Many of the buildings carry advertisements and display a business name prominently.; Legible signs on the street car include: "University.", "Dalton Ave.", "Exposition Park".
