From my postcard collection… I haven’t seen this shot very often. Most street scenes I’ve found of Rockford, Michigan are taken from Main and Courtland looking south on Main—so you see the Corner Bar or Hessler Opera House. In this case the shot is taken just west of Courtland looking east through the intersection with Main. You can still see Hessler’s and a beer ad on the side of the Corner, but you also get to see Bett’s House. It’s postmarked June 3, 1907.

I hope to visit soon!

Happy hunting!
