Newscopy: "AS IT WAS IN 1865--Howard street now is, as it was in 1865, the main artery in the machine and iron manufacturing district of the city. There is no change in the character of the business pictured in these two photographs, but the shot tower has disappeared and modern buildings take the place of the old. The upped picture is from the collection of O. B. Martin."
