2nd & Main, Downtown Hillsboro


Black and white image of the intersection of two streets in downtown Hillsboro, identified in museum records as 2nd and Main Streets, looking south. Two men are crossing the street, while cars wait to turn until they pass. A blinking light is suspended over the middle of the intersection. Many businesses are visible, ranging from 'Canton Cafe' serving noodles and chop suey, an auto parts store, a plumber, a Savings and loan, the law office of E. B. and Thomas Tongue, Jr. (on the second floor of the B and T Market corner building), and a furniture store. A 'Piggly Wiggly' Grocery store is just visible in the far left of the image.
