Each sign features an artist’s rendition, skillfully rendered from Museum archival photographs, of two time periods for each Main Streets block. The first time period is the late 1880s and the second is the early 1900s. From the vantage point at the marker, the viewer can look across the street and visualize what structures the block contained in those eras compared to what the block looks like today. For viewer interest, the marker also contains a few brief facts about the illustrated time periods. The map below indicates the location of each marker.
