The postcard of the day is a great 1906 view of the busy downtown area of Rochester Indiana on Main Street looking North and showing two sides of the Square with all the stores and businesses. This card was published in 1906, mailed in April 1907 but there are no automobiles visible so it is probably closer to a 1900 image. The 1910 census shows a population of 3,364 and the current population is listed as 5,969. A larger image is available in the Indiana Postcards section of the Moody's Postcards website.
