Main Street

Woolworth’s and a variety of stores, theaters and restaurants populate downtown Mesa in this post-Prohibition view of Main Street just east of Macdonald. The hub of a farm town, downtown Mesa was also emerging as an urban center even during the grips of the Great Depression. Signs advertising Coors and Budweiser indicate Mesa, along with the most of the United States, had decided that a “dry” society was a failure. A bright, flashy Coca-Cola wall sign advertises the popular product. Cars zip along Main Street.
