Street scene photograph showing the location of Dayton area telephone poles and telephone lines. Photograph No. 105, On Wayne Avenue, at Wilmington Avenue, looking northwest. In addition to the telephone pole lines, the photograph shows: residences, automobiles, and pedestrians, at the edge of the Belmont neighborhood in Dayton. Several billboards are visible in the foreground, advertising dancing and an orchestra at Lakeside (probably Lakeside Park), The Electrical League, and "WING" (possibly the radio station). In the front yard of the home just behind the billboards, children appear to be playing.
