Celebrating our past: Green County Historical Society
This photo, showing women walking south on the west side of the Square, is on page 39 in "A Glimpse Back in Time." The buildings in the background are located along 10th Street. This is one of 166 photographs found in the book, published by the Green County Historical Society in 2010. All of the photographs were made from glass negatives photographed by Will E. Trukenbrod between 1910 and 1920 in Monroe. It is unfortunate that the people in the photographs are not identified. The building on the right is the Chenoweth Block, built in the 1870s, and later housed the Monroe Clinic. A photo of that building may be seen on page 11 of "The Pictorial History of Monroe." Both "A Glimpse Back in Time" and "Pictorial History of Monroe" are available at Sequels Fine Interior Consignments, Schultz Pharmacy and Ekum Abstracts. More information is available by contacting Matt Figi at or 608-325-6503. (Photo supplied by Green County Historical Society)
