    Object Title 1:03 East Side of the Square
    Alternative Title 100 Block North Franklin; Kirksville Photos by Drake, 1893: The Clifford Henry Album (MUSDP K1)
    Creator Drake
    Subject Kirksville (Mo.)
    Description From newspaper accounts, one could get the impression that the east side of the square was not a good place to do business in the early 1890s. The stores seem to have changed quite frequently and all but one of the ground floor businesses in this shot either closed or changed hands during the first half of 1893. Working north along the block: Cross & Bro., Grocers, 106; Cole & Green, Furniture & Undertakers, 108 (owner/name change Apr ’93); J.E. Owen, Grocer, 110 (closed June ‘93); L.A. Willard, Grocer, 112 (closed not long after Willard’s death in Feb ‘93); J.F. Whitacre’s New York Dry Goods in the Wilson Block, 116-118 (closed Apr ‘93). Upstairs at 102½, C.L. Lewis, Attorney at Law remained in the same place for years.
