Title

Howell, Michigan, Early Photograph, Aerial

Description

This photograph appeared in the August 28, 1963 issue of the Livingston County Press, and was originally published February 13, 1935.  Thomas Cotter  found a copy of this photograph in 1935 while going through the effects of his late mother, Mrs. Emma Watkins.  Mrs. Watkins died in 1934, and lived for many years on Fowler Street.  The photograph was said to have been made by photographer, W. E. Cleave  and older persons in the community estimated it was made sometime between 1865 and 1870. The photograph was later taken by Ed Beach and Wilbur Johnson to L. Nelson to be enlarged. 

 The view is from the top of Union School and is looking north towards the intersection of Grand River Avenue and Michigan Avenue (Division Street).  The exact year is unknown.

A full description of the buildings in this picture are included in the  1935 Article.  The buildings include a hotel,  bank, dry goods store, grocery, print shop, Masonic Hall, barber shop, and in the distance three buildings on what was then the Bowers farm.
