• This is a wonderful view of West Hancock. When magnified you can see the Lieblein Wholesale Grocery building (which still stands today on Hancock Street housing the offices of OHM and several apartments) being constructed. The Central Primary School (opened in 1894) and the Lieblein House (generally attributed to 1895) are visible in the photo thus I believe that the image was taken slightly later than 1893. Some later 1890s structures such as City Hall, the Finnish Apostolic Lutheran Church, and Lake View Station (after its move) are not seen in the image thus it seems certain to date to the mid-1890s.
