Looking east on Onondaga (Main) Street from the Kellogg corner as two men alight from the Ft. Dodge, Des Moines, and Southern Interurban car which is headed east (note the direction of the trolley). On the north side of the street, two men can be seen loading (or unloading) a horse-drawn buggy--this is clearly a transition period for personal transportation. On the right hand curb, on the south side of the street, can be seen a sports car with bucket seats. The automobile is parked in front of a real estate building (one-story frame covered with tin siding, simulating brick). The Fair Store follows to the east. Carr Hardware is on the north side of Onondaga (later it would move to a building on the south side). The tallest building on the north side is the Odd Fellows building (constructed in 1901, destroyed by fire, December, 1917). The buildings to the east of it were built in the 1880s and 1890s. The Ames power plant is seen off in the distance. The street has wood block paving. Other copies of this photograph, showing more of the northeast corner, on which a water trough is visible, and less of the southeast corner are 9.35.4; 9.36.1; and 9.39.1-2.
