Comparison of the two 1908 versions. Early postcard manufacturers, many of whom were German, some American (This was published by Frank Nichols) liked to enhance the original photos to make the towns look a little better. Note that the tire marks and all else are identical assuring us that this is the same photo. Telephone poles & wires have been removed - this was pre-electric.  Color and attractive stripes added to awnings. A horse, wagon and man were painted in at the watering trough on the left corner.
