Hillsboro Main Street

Title

Hillsboro Main Street

Description

Sepia-toned image mounted on heavy card stock. Several boys in suits and hats stand on a boardwalk in front of a dirt road. An African American man stands with them, and other men stand about the street or sit in front of the Tualatin Hotel, located on the other side of the dirt road. A horse and buggy stand in the middle of the road, and a large wagon with three rows of seating stands a little further down the road. The sign on the building to the image left reads 'Farmers Exchange' and just behind that a sign reads 'Jackson's Billiard Hall.' There appears to only be two buildings on the right side of the street, and possibly four or five on the left side, before trees and fields take over the landscape.
