0252e Old Christiansburg Scenes, Courthouse, wagons 1905 – 1906 (negative)=BU=SS=CO=GV=PS

Livestock in downtown Christiansburg was the reality when this photograph was taken in 1904. The view looks across the front of buildings housing agricultural implement, wagon and harness dealers where the Barnes-Surface (Antiques on Main) Building now stands. Town Square was to the left; note the cupola of the 1836 Courthouse in the background. (This photo, from the D. D. Lester Collection, and many more are available from the Montgomery Museum of Art and History.)
