Description
Photograph of a view of Bellflower Boulevard showing commercial shops and a crowd of pedestrians, ca.1912. A large crowd of pedestrians stands just to the off-center along the left side of the street, while a horse-drawn carriage is visible making its way out of the bottom left foreground. One-story commercial buildings line the street to either side, many of them flying American flags. In a side alley off the street to the left, an early automobile can be seen decorated in star-spangled regalia. Picture file card reads "Fourth of July?". Legible signs from left to right include: "Dr. [...] Optician", "Tailoring", "Milne's Bakery", "Board by Day or Week. Home Cooking", "Bell[flowe]r Grocery", "Sto[...]y Drug Co. Crescent Ice Cream", "Office Somerset Bellflower Realty Co. Geo. Lockyer[...]", "P.F. Haskell M.D. Physician and Surgeon. Office hours 1 2 pm", and "Eyes tested for glasses".
