First National Bank block

First National Bank block

This block was located opposite Court Square, where the MassMutual center currently stands. Other visible businesses are:

  • Frank G. Tobey, dealer in hats, caps, and gentleman's furnishing goods
  • N.B. Clark & Co., Manufacturers and Dealers in cigars & tobacco.
  • Moore Brothers, Photographic Artists

In 1876, the following visible businesses did not appear in the city directory:

  • D. Power & Co., Coal Office
  • Phelan Billiard Place

So the year of the photo does not appear to be 1876.

Here is a different angle of the same block, from another stereoview.
