The Morning After--- February 20, 1899
This is perhaps the most familiar picture of the aftermath of the
Wisconsin Chair Company fire. The picture was taken the day after
the fire and shows the east side of Franklin Street. The buildings on the
right are now the location of Smith Bros. Fish Shanty Restaurant.
Notice the Wilson House on the far left upper corner of the picture and
the Coast Guard Light Station on the bluff in the distance.
