West Villard


A photo of buildings on West Villard looking West near the corners of Barnes Street (later became First Avenue West). The First National Bank is the brick building seen near the middle of the photo. A sign on the far left reads "Saddles & Harness John Rattan". Rattan was a saddlemaker who began his business in early 1896 and moved his business to the building shown here in April 1896. In January 1897 Rattan had suddenly ended his business and left town. Rattan would return to Dickinson years later to begin his saddlemaking business again.
