‘1913 Fire on Main Street, Eskridge, Kansas’

1913 Fire on Main Street, Eskridge, Kansas

This real photo postcard by Easter Studio, Eskridge, Kansas, shows the destruction wrought by a 1913 fire which destroyed nine of the twelve buildings on the west side of the 100 block of Main Street of Eskridge. The same section of this block had been destroyed 23 years earlier in an 1890 fire which swept down the street. Photo courtesy the Dean Dunn collection.
