Sterling 1918-WWI soldiers return

I just loved this early pic with all the banners and activity in the streets.Large parts of downtown had not been built yet,but you see the Lawerence Bldg standing proud, and in the distance,the newly constructed Lawerence Bros. Mfg.plant(completed in 1913).The arch has not yet been put up-that probably happened the following year. I don't know if I have ever seen this concentration of flags and banners before!
