Can anyone here pinpoint this view? There were no details except for the date.

The odd shaped building in the lower left makes me think there could be a diagonal street just out of the shot.

Those little corner buildings, lower left, run along a little diagonal alley known as Broadway Place that runs down from 10th btw Broadway and Main. This is shot up Main St from 11th.

The two really big buildings in the shot are on 9th btw Main and Santee -- the Harriss Newmark and Cooper Dry Goods bldgs, both by Curlett-Beelman, 1925 and 1923.
