This photo, taken in 1889 by Robert Barnes, shows the intersection of Water and Buffalo streets in Milwaukee. A horse and carriage and an electric streetcar travel next to each other down Water Street, past businesses including J. Dahlman & Co. This photo was a souvenir of the 23rd encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic, a Civil War veterans’ fraternal organization, published by the Milwaukee County Historical Society in 1889.
