DescriptionThe photograph shows Adams St in Peoria, IL looking north east from Liberty Street. It shows a busy street with numerous horsedrawn wagons and a street car. There are pedestrians including several women in floorlength dresses and large hats. The large building on the left has a sign, several stories in height which reads: "I am for Men. Henry George 5 cent cigar." Below it on the street level is another sign which reads: "Huber's Drug Store." In front of the signs a pole is decorated as a barber pole. There is also a small street vendor's wagon. At the street corner is a fire hydrant. American flags fly from the tops of several buildings. A few of the multistory buildings have awnings either at street level or on upper windows. There is a sign on the back of the street car and possibly numbers on the corners of the car.
