(left) Looking south towards Center Street, in the 100 block of Front Street (North 1st Ave.), about 1892. This was the rough side of town in the early years, and the interface with the Indian Reservation. Notice that the businesses are generally saloons and restaurants. The Wood River Restaurant is a long way from the Wood River. The Chinese compound and the walled city were one block south of Center on the east side of First Ave. The Phoenix Building stands at the southeast corner of First Ave. and East Center at the far right of the photo, Bannock County Historical Society Collection.
