The Mayer Business Block.

This photograph of the Mayer Business Block must have been taken in 1904, shortly after the four phases of the building were completed, as there is very little signage. The Mayer Saloon is on the left, the restaurant is next, then Wicks and Mayer Mercantile in the original building built in 1902, and on the right, the barber shop. Joe Mayer is standing next to the pony cart on the far right with a small dog at his feet. A freight wagon and a trap are tied up out front. The hitching rails are still in front of the building. With about 25 people standing around in front of the Mayer Business Block, it must have been a busy day in town.
