Street view of a large crowd in front of the store, presumably for a public event, on the "Head Block" (business district on the northeast corner of Gurley and Montezuma Streets) in Prescott, Arizona.

An influential businessman in Prescott, Wilson, along with other business owners, established the first Elks Lodge (a fraternal order for men) in Arizona in January 1896. The Head Block was also known as the Wilson Block, as evidence of Wilson's importance in the community.
