Henry Alley at High Street, Mineral Point, Wisconsin, ca. 1900.
Three women contend with Mineral Point’s impressively hilly landscape as they ascend a board sidewalk to High Street. The street’s name—High Street, not Main Street—reflects the influence of the Cornish settlers who came to the community in the 1830s and 40s. “The High Street” is the common term for the main business street in British towns.
