John Haeussler8/6/2014 10:41:22 AMThis photo shows the eastern side of Tezcuco Street from Hancock Street up to Quincy Street. Evert and Dollinger's Milwaukee House (with Saloon 8) is at the northeast corner of Hancock and Tezcuco. At the north end of the block we get a glimpse of William Kerredge's hardware store, part of the Copper Country Community Arts Center today. The front of Edward Perso's dry goods store is also visible on the northeast corner of Quincy and Tezcuco. The balcony seen to the far left is that of the Lake View House, probably known as the International Hotel at the time this photo was taken.
