Photograph of Main Street in El Centro, ca.1910. At center, a wide dirt road can be seen extending into the extreme background. At left, a line of connected brick buildings are visible running parallel to the street. Legible signs include: "Bank", "Druggist", and "General Merchandise". Alongside the buildings, several men can be seen walking along the sidewalk. Along the street, several horse-drawn carriages are visible.

A carriage with two horses sits nearby.
