This intriguingly fascinating photo taken at the intersection of Hamilton and South Clinton Avenue looking east (1904) will challenge those of us who are familiar with that very urban location in this year of 2017. It is a 20 page pamphlet published by the "Republican County Committee" revealing the many improvements that their organization took credit for accomplishing during the years when they were in office. Schools, fire houses, streets and roads, burying wires in order to remove the countless poles and wires, etc. It took a bit of Photoshop magic to digitize, brighten and finish this photo. It is one of many others that will be published by the Hamilton Library Local History Collection.
