Street scene photograph showing the location of Dayton area telephone poles and telephone lines. Photograph No. 54, On Brandt Pike, at City Line (probably a little north of Bickmore Avenue), looking north. In addition to the telephone pole lines, the photograph shows: a rural scene on the edge of Old North Dayton, including residences, automobiles, a billboard, a windmill, and a railroad crossing in the distance.
