To see how I used this picture,
Tommie Houston gave me this picture, along with a dozen or so others that belonged to Helen (Nebel) Stout. This picture is printed in several books, as well as posted on a website as South Main Street in Picher, Oklahoma. After being asked about that several times I have to state that it is impossible for that to be true for many reasons. The sad part is that it is printed in "history" books, and you can't unprint them.
There is nor was there ever a 4100 block of
South Main in Picher.
The thing that bothers me about those old pictures is the gas lights suspended from the ceilings. Since Picher originated in 1914 or 15, and the 1917 panorama shows electric as well as telephone lines, did Picher actually have gas lights?And, the United Iron Company (junk yard) wasn't on Second nor Trail's End. It was at the south end of Ella, and straight east of Third.
I firmly believe that if you're going to report history, at least you should properly identify it.
Now, I'll get off my soapbox
