Street scene photograph showing the location of Dayton area telephone poles and telephone lines. Photograph No. 112, On Warren Street, at Canal Bridge, looking northeast. In addition to the telephone pole lines, the photograph shows: view of residences and businesses in downtown Dayton, with the metal railing of the Miami-Erie Canal bridge prominently in the foreground. This area was later reconfigured when U.S. 35 was constructed, so this precise intersection no longer exists. The Miami-Erie Canal route later became Patterson Boulevard.
