Photograph of the Corrough Block at 901 Main Street (northwest corner of 4th and Main) in Grinnell, Iowa. Built in 1900 in Romanesque style; the building was significant for its use of stone and brick. The Main Street facade features rusticated stone. The Fourth Avenue facade is constructed of rough textured burgundy brick on the lower level and smooth-moulded buff colored brick on the upper level. The oriel window on the second floor was where the dental chair sat because of the good lighting. Photo also features man and woman standing outside of bank. Horses and buggies in the street. Boardwalk across the unpaved street. Visible businesses include F.A. Palmer Dentist, Lanphere Land co., Gallagher Dentist, and a drug store. Drake Community Library (Grinnell, Iowa) Archives.
