• This photo was likely taken on April 22, 1927, not 1922. The middle poster seen on the Kerredge Theatre advertises Easy Pickings starring Anna Q. Nilsson. This film was released in February, 1927 (per imdb.com) and was shown at the Kerredge on April 21 and 22 per local newspapers. The poster on the side (far left) of the theatre advertises Casey at the Bat starring Wallace Beery. This film was released in March, 1927 (per imdb.com) and was shown at the Kerredge beginning on April 25 per local newspapers. The poster to the far right likely advertises Zane Grey's The Mysterious Rider starring Jack Holt. This film was released in March, 1927 (per imdb.com) and was shown at the Kerredge on April 23 and 24 per local newspapers.

• This is one of my favorite Hancock images. In addition to the magnificent Scott Hotel and Kerredge Theatre it offers a reasonably good view of the (second) Finnish Evangelical Lutheran Church behind the hotel with houses and mining buildings further up the hill. Through the trees on the far right you can make out the new First Congregational Church and some East Hancock homes. At the far left is the side of the Wright Block. The Houghton County Traction Company's streetcar tracks are visible on the street with the power lines overhead. The people on the streets and the classic cars enhance this beautiful image.
