What a great picture of Main Street Lake Odessa! The picture was taken in 1914 and shows the Lake Odessa Booster Club and appears to be a parade of some sort. The band is in the background and there are banners across the street. It is a wonderful street scene and shows the corner of Fourth Avenue and Second Street. The Farmers and Merchants Bank is in the foreground with the Weed Undertaking and Furniture Store next north. The street is still dirt as it was not paved until
1916. It is amazing how much Lake Odessa has changed over the years but the landscape is still so familiar!
