Crowd Outside Public Auditorium

East 6th Street, from Superior to Lakeside, was lined with white pillars topped with eagles. Each eagle reportedly cost $400, a considerable sum in 1924. This photo of East 6th (facing south) shows those pillars, as well as men in straw hats milling about and Model-T cars proceeding cautiously through the crowd near Public Hall (not seen in this photo, but just to the right).
