A photo of Dayton Street from the 1900s is superimposed on the same location today. Visible are T.J. Jobes Carriage Shop and Jacob Diehl's store, which advertises groceries, meat and "tobaccos." Today the building houses the Dayton Street Gulch. (Photo by Megan Bachman, historical photo courtesy of Antiochiana, Antioch College)

All historical photos (with the exception of the Eschliman family shot) are courtesy of Antiochiana, Antioch College.
