Jackson Street at the Turn of the Century: Another View

On November 30 of last year, i posted a view of Jackson street taken probably between 1906 and 1910: .https://ouachitaparishhistory.com/2018/11/30/jackson-street-at-the-turn-of-the-century

I found this second view, probably taken pre 1906 due to no trolley tracks in the street.

Prominent in the foreground is St. Matthew’s Roman Catholic Church. You see that it doesn’t have a steeple yet. Grammont street comes into Jackson right next to the church. There is a private residence and then then the Orleans hotel. Next to it is the 1st Methodist Episcopal (South) Church. Across Jackson street from St. Matthew’s is another Methodist Episcopal Church.
