Main Street, Richardson, Texas

Description:

View down an unpaved street, wheel tracks visible, with buildings visible on both sides.
On the left is a 3 or 4 store row of false fronted buildings with awnings in front. Behind them is a single building with the gabled ends perpendicular to the street. A railroad crossing sign is visible. On the horizon is a large barn. Both sides of the street have electrical/utility poles.
On the right is a row of buildings/stores with awnings, some with false fronts. It looks as if there is a cross street just in front of the blocks of buildings, with another at the railroad crossing sign.

View is to the west, of Main Street, Richardson, which is continuous with (and connects) East & West Belt Line Rds.
