Our first photos from the Monroe Illustrated were labeled, “BIRD’S-EYE VIEW OF THE CITY.” The first caption stated it was a view of City of Monroe from City School Tower. Of course, the City School was the Monroe City High School, which sat where Anna Grey Noe Park is now. I think the the building with the tower in the foreground may be the old City Hall, which sat on St. John. The street intersecting it is Wood. The bottom photo was labeled, “Business Section from Monroe Progressive League Building”. I am unfamiliar with that building, and the paper is badly faded on this one. It may be the Sugar Theatre. The 1912 city directory stated that was where their offices were.
