An Ada scene familiar to your great-grandparents

If you look closely you might be able to idenfiy the exact location of this photo. It's looking south on Ada's Main Street in a colorized post card from the beginning of an earlier century.

A couple thing to consider:
• Look at all those trees – they are somewhat mature, meaning that there was probably a planned planting 25 years earlier.

• We aren't able to determine if the street is paved or dirt. If paved, it is red bricks and would help identify a year.

• We don't see electric poles nor any vehicles or people (the dress of the day would help better identify a year).

Other viewer observations are welcome. This photo is from the collection of the Ada Public Library.
