Uncaptioned and undated photo with view north onto Main Street near intersection of 5th and Main in front of original Ashton Hotel that was destroyed by fire in 1920. Subject is events taking place at American Dog Derby. Photo appears to be of Boys' Race. Photo can be dated. Since the original Ashton Hotel is standing, it must be prior to 1920. Prior to 1920, the 1918 Derby was the only Derby with warm sunny weather. This can only be the American Dog Derby held March 3rd, 1918. Photographer unknown.
