South Side of Denton Square

Description:

A view of the business section on the south side of the Denton Square around 1889.

Stores visible from the left to right on the Piner Block are Craddocks, The Big 5 and 10 Cent Store, Nochols and Stribling Grocers, G. W. Wilson and Co. Grocers, J. A. Hann and Co. Cheap Cash Store, and A. E. Freeman Groceries.
