Cross Street north of Howard Street, Waveland, Indiana section 4

c1910 postcard view of Cross Street north of Howard Street in Waveland, Indiana. This view is looking northeast from the intersection of Cross and Howard Streets. A HOTEL sign at the left edge of the view advertised a hotel on the northwest corner of that intersection. The barber’s pole stood in front of a barbershop located next door to the hotel. The only readable business name is on the awning near the center of this view. It’s B. H. CANINE. The only association I could find online was Ben H. Canine of Russellville, son of John C. Canine who died in 1918. The 1902 Sanborn™ fire insurance map set for Waveland shows a dry goods and grocery business at this location (north of the alley). The nearby barber’s pole appears to have been south of the alley, but the 1902 Sanborn™ map set shows a saloon at that location. That map set shows a barber in the stand-along building seen at the right edge of this postcard. Clearly, the nature of the business in that location had changed by the time this photograph was produced, but there’s no name on the building.
