Webster Street, with dog, postcard (c1900).jpg


This postcard from around 1900 is one of my favorite views of Webster Street (facing north). You can see trains used to run right down the street near where the Riviera would later be built. On the left is present-day Crazy Jake's. Horse-drawn carriages and carts are also on the left, making the scene really look like something out of a western. Also visible is the "Arcana Theatre" at the southwest corner of Tremont (in the Fowler Block), the Tonawanda Power Company, and some circular sign I cannot make out.
