Description

In March of 1893, the home of Ezekiel Clark, Sr. and the Samuel Kirkwoods' caught on fire, destroying the building completely. The house was on what is now First Avenue, overlooking the Iowa River (Lovetinsky et al., p. 95).

The image shows a two-story home engulfed in flames, framework exposed. The photograph appears to be taken at night, as the edges are black.
