N. Huron Street Back in the Day

Here's a photo of the west side of N. Huron to accompany the dead frog story in The photo is from a bit prior to 1909, I'm guessing, but is undated. Cooper's photo studio, and impromptu fishing-tackle factory, would have been at the southwest corner of Huron and Pearl, on the second story. I believe you can see Pearl where there is a gap between buildings, there; the squarish building to the north of all the others is, I take it, just north of Pearl.

The "Occidental," seen at right, was as you know a mineral-waters spa and hotel. It operated in the 1890s and 1900s.
