One of seven known postcards of Rainier, Oregon that was produced in the early 20th century by E.C. Kropp Company in Milwaukee. This is Main Street (now "A" Street) looking East. Only two buildings shown in this postcard still exist, the one at right is presently the True Value Hardware and to the left of that is now the Cornerstone Cafe. The buildings shown on the left side of the street were destroyed in a fire on June 28, 1924. A month later on July 27 the Grand Hotel (the white building right of the locomotive) was also destroyed by a fire.
