Chicago Hairdressing Academy

Looking northwest from the Great Northern Depot, 1939. Chicago Hairdressing Academy is across the street, and the St. Mary’s steeple is barely visible behind the steam locomotive. 

Interesting to note this photo composite shines a spotlight on several generations of transportation–a horsedrawn wagon, a steam locomotive, an automobile, and the recent popularity of urban cycling as a mode of travel in Fargo.

  1. On page 109 the bottom photo says location unknown but I know exactly where it is – as I’ve lived very close to there the majority of my life! It is the corner of 13th Ave and Broadway – looking NE from the church kiddy corner from there!
