Small Town Atmosphere?
You just never know what to expect when you walk out the front door of a Downtown Collinsville business. Skateboarders are now occasionally getting tickets for being a safety hazard our sidewalks. Looks like we also need to watch out for horses and perhaps watch where we step? -- Ted
This 1906 view of Downtown Collinsville was taken in the next block further east from the 2010 horse photo above. I have a more complete copy of that old photo at the Newspaper Museum which shows a well in the middle of the dirt intersection of 11th and Main with a hand pump well and trough to water your horse which was the main mode of transportation. -- Ted
