Real Photo Postcard (RPPC) with view to south on Main Street between 5th and 6th streets of Tud Kent racing east in the 1919 American Dog Derby. Kent raced for Harriman's Railroad Ranch owned by Union Pacific Railroad. This was Kent's second win since he also won the first American Dog Derby of 1917. The crowd was estimated at 1,500 but were mostly standing on the other (north) side of the street as seen in other photos. Ashton's new modern electric pedestal clock tells us that this photo was snapped at 1:49 PM, the afternoon of February 22nd, 1919.
