Mississippi Streets: 1920s Corinth

Today’s Mississippi street-scene comes from the Corinth, Miss. Collection at the Mississippi Department of Archives and History:

The twenty black-and-white photographs in this collection were produced ca. 1920 by McCord’s Studio in Corinth. The images are of commercial buildings, houses, fire fighting and farm equipment, and general street scenes (the city reportedly paved twenty-five miles of residential streets between 1922 and 1927).

  1. Thank you. This was taken by my great uncle’s photography studio. Notice the relative uniformity of the row buildings on the left side of the street (after the corner building). That block burned completely in the Twenties. This was taken shortly after rebuilding.
