Recognize this place? XXII

Lexington once had “complete” streets.  Here we see pedestrians, a guy on a bike, some early cars, and a horse drawn carriage it looks like.

Doesn’t main street look more appealing, even narrower, than it does today?

Anyone know exactly where these buildings were?  Mr Sweeper?  Was it west of Broadway?

  1. The simple answer is in the signs of the clothing store on the left side of the street. Graves & Cox was on the CentrePointe block so you are looking west from the intersection of Main and Lime. Can you see the old Skuller’s clock which has been removed for repair and maybe make out the McAdams and Morford building at the intersection of Upper?

    Late 1800s, pre-automobile. It won’t look like this again, even after peak oil.
