Broadway photo illustration 1935

Friday, January 1, 2010
Development of the natural trade territory in the Illinois across the Mississippi River has been set as one of the major objectives of Cape Girardeau during the new year. How it shall be developed and what means shall be used must be determined early. Barriers which now stand in the way must be removed. The above photograph was used by the artist to present a picture conception of this objective as the camera's eye looks toward the rising sun and the new year from a vantage point on Broadway. (Southeast Missourian Dec. 31, 1935)
