This view is of State Street from the intersection of Fifth Street, looking towards the Capitol in 1904.

This photo was taken during the construction of the new Capitol Building, and scaffolding is visible where the dome would be built. The building also lacks most of its white facade.

To the left is Thorley's Pharmacy, at 451 State. At 449, a cafe sits, advertising oysters. (See Druggists and Cafes)
