Mitchell’s Main Street, circa 1910, is captured in this photo, taken from the middle of the 100 block of North Main, looking north toward Second Avenue. The Gale Building is shown on the northwest corner, First National Bank (still standing) on the southwest corner and Ferris Drug (Only Way Cleaners on second floor) on the northeast corner of Second and Main Street. The Corn Palace was located at Fifth and Main at the time; the top of a dome is visible above the young man’s head. The streets are not paved yet, as this was done in 1912. The apparel of the day was large hats and long dresses for women and knickers for the boys. (Photo courtesy of the Mitchell Area Historical Society)
