My city, 1910

Google Map. Open in a new tab for super-size.
Little Rock, my city. From the Arkansas River, 1910. Very little of this scene still exists today. The Capital Hotel is a notable survivor and its roof can be seen behind the flat water tower just right of center. Also quite visible are the painted ads that would today be ghost signs.

Thanks :D
Searcy's my other city. I don't think Shorpy has any old photos of Searcy, though.
