Summer view of Sims Street, looking north from the corner of 1st Street and Sims. On the left is a two-story house that was the home of Dr. V. H. Stickney, which is partially obstructed from view by trees. There is a fence around the yard. On the right side of the street, two houses can be seen, also partially obstructed from view by trees. There are more buildings along the right hand side of the street in the distance. There is a sidewalk alongside a series of picket fences that runs along the right side of the street. Two women in long dark skirts and white blouses are standing facing each other at the right side of the intersection of the two streets. Seven children and a dog are standing in a line facing the camera in the middle of the street. A horse-drawn buggy advances down the street toward the camera. Another buggy can be seen on the street in the distance. Telephone and electric poles line both sides of the street. Exact date unknown. Not identified.
