Poco Bueno was a cutting horse.
The stone statue on the right is not a Civil War monument. It's E. M. Viquesney's ''Spirit of the American Navy'' from 1927. The same sculptor did both statues as WWI memorials. There are 7 known Viquesney ''Navy'' statues, and this is the only one made of stone.
This was clearly built as a Montgomery Ward Building. That's the "Spirit of Progress" logo at the top of the building.
This is an awsome photo. I really like how the still lake merges with the coluds and horizon.
Thanks, one of the several overlays I've been coming out with.
This was the B. F. Ringgold building
It was constructed in 1923 and Mr. Ringgold sold
Furniture and Hardwear, along with many other items. It has a large basement under the South 1/2 that had a barber shop in the North side of the basement. At one time there was an electric operated lift chair that would carry you up the stairs to the 2nd floor.
