Title

Hook and Ladder on Sims

Description

Dickinson fire department on horses with hook and ladder going down Sims Street in the 1890s. The Dickinson Recorder printing building is on the right side. Written in the lower right corner is, "22." Written on the back in the upper right is, "-24-" and on the left "#166."

Information from a caption with a copy of this photo appeared in the Diamond Jubilee Edition of the Dickinson Press July 2, 1957. The caption reads “ Fourth of July- this was Dickinson’s 4th of July Parade going down Sims Street in 1900. Leading the parade is Sheriff John Goodall Sr. and son. On the right side the Bakery building would now be Buttrey’s, then Kostelecky Bros. had a store and lived above it, the site of the Rialto show house and the frame dwelling (Dr. J.B. McDonald’s) was replaced by the Masonic lodge. On the left a part of McDonald’s first drug store shows, across the alley was the Pisha store (now Schnell’s), the Thorpe building which was put up in 1885 and is still standing, it housed the photographer Tilton and then a Bakery; the building with the flag is J.P. Berringer’s meat market probably owned by Paul Ziner then; next a small shop, Miss Murn’s millinery and on the corner the old Rau building, put up in 1883, soon became E.F. Messersmith’s feed and flour store.”

Given the business buildings and signs shown, this photo may have actually been taken in July 1901.
