Looking west down Manatee Avenue from the corner of Broad Street (11th Street West) and Manatee Avenue. The Fuller building and facing building on Old Main Street are of brick, and there are nice paved sidewalks along Courthouse Square at left and in front of the stores at right, but the street is still unpaved and a free-range cow enjoys a nibble along the right side of the street. The buildings all have porches to guard against sun or rain. A gentleman stands near a propped-up bicycle and the main line of telephone poles stand along Manatee Avenue.
