If you zoom in 100% you can see that the second business from the left is the 'Vienna Bakery Cafe'. A fire started in this business on May 7, 1909 and burned all of the buildings in this row down. Also of note is the sign on the back of the car-
"Alkali Bill's Auto Line". This company provided transportation from the railroad depot (Bullfrog Goldfield Railroad) at Springdale to Pioneer.
