Picture 20.

We are looking west from E. Main St.  At the right, we see two city streetcars approaching the Transfer House from N. Main.  To our left, an interurban car is making its way from S. Main to W. Main, heading for the line to Springfield.  The St. Nicholas Hotel is at the left edge of this picture, with the Decatur Hotel at the right edge.  A sign has been added to the northeast side of the Transfer House roof.  In two lines, it says “BASE BALL” and “NO GAME”.  (Presumably, the second line could be changed, depending on the baseball schedule.)  There is a horse and wagon, and a bicyclist, but not a single automobile is in view. — Chodat's Book Store
