Chestnut Street View Towards the East from 2nd Street
The date is July 10,1932 and you can hear the clang of the trolley as it goes up Chestnut Street after turning from Main Street and the Union Depot. This image is from the John Runk Collection, Stillwater Public Library. The vantage point is just east of Second Street with a view toward the east. The Lift Bridge is in the background, just one year old at this time.
