This is a Ben Winans photograph of the Decoration Day parade on May 30, 1902.   The Brookville Band is in the foreground with the GAR or Civil War veterans behind in their black suits ("GAR" stands for "Grand Army of the Republic").   They had become old men by then; but they were young men when the Civil War ended in 1865.   On the far right of the photo is the building that housed Ben Winans' Printery in 1902.
The streets were not paved, but there were stone crossings which were very nice in wet weather.
