Shown here is the old Rapides Parish Court House on 2nd Street, today known as Main Street. The photo was probably taken about 1910 or a little later. The group of men and boys in front seem to be viewing some type of equipment display in the tent in front of the court house. Two street car conductors are pictured in their uniforms on the left hand side of the photo.

Shown below is the original image, followed by the edited image after photo restoration work was done by the Museum staff.
