Downtown Moscow 1951

Downtown Moscow, Idaho, circa 1951. This is a commissioned piece for the coming Moscow Arts Commission auction in September. I was committed to do it by my best daughter-in-law, Naphtali Garfield, but I didn't mind. Old Moscow types will identify places like Washington Water Power (current home of New St Andrews College), the Varsity Cafe, Fonk's Five & Dime, the Moscow Hotel, and the two theaters. (The guy in the foreground is feeding a parking meter - not currently on Main St.)
