Description Black and white mounted photograph depicting George H. Mitchell hardware store and George F. Mallard Drug Store on Main Street. "Stoves. Geo. H. Mitchell. Tinware." and "Geo. F. Mallard, Druggist" are painted on signs at the top of Mitchell/Mallard Block.

The building is draped in red, white and blue banners and American flag banners. Three men stand outside of the hardware store. Many items are displayed along the sidewalk including rakes, ladders, pails, wheel barrows etc... A mortar and pestle trade sign stands in front of the drug store. "Mallard" is written across the display window and the window contains many boxes/items as well as two large decorative apothocary jars.

The building at left advertises "Lakeport Steam Laundry" and "J.P. Atkinson Cash Grocer establishment. Choice Grocer. Stone and wooden ware. Agent for Lily Flour".

Main street appears to be paved with brick or stone pavers. The curbs of the sidewalks are granite lined. Utility poles line the street. A sign between the stores advertises "Base Ball. Laconia ___ ___. Saturday July 29. Franklin vs. Laconia"
