I was going through a box of memorabilia from days gone by and I stumbled across a postcard letter from my great grandmother to my great grandfather dated 1906. It had various old photos of Nauvoo taken in 1905. I was struck by this one of Mulholland Street. Look at the multi arm poles on the left and then look closely at the old telegraph poles on the right side of the street. Cool to see them as they were originally placed.
