Description

An iconic image of Simla's main street (Sioux) in the early 1900s, probably the 1920s, as indicated by the automobiles and attire of individuals. The picture looks north toward the Rock Island Railroad line and steam or smoke from a departing engine wafts in the background. The photographer was likely at the intersection of what is now Sioux Avenue and Caribou Street (now Highway 24) when taking this picture.
