Title
Fire in the business section. [verso:] In the darkest hour the cry was for dynamite. The country was scoured for it as a thirsty horde scours a country for wells. Blocks of fine buildings were, under the direction of navy and army officers, blown into ruins with as little thought of their value as if they had been of tissue paper, while the very owners welcomed the destruction.--Collier's Weekly. [Market St. between Fourth and Fifth Sts during fire. Emporium department store, left. Postcard.]
