That one was stuck in the Williams family photo album.

I'm guessing around World War I? I can't count the stars on the flag...

Some of the men are in shirt sleeves, and the trees at the far end of Main Street appear to be fully leafed out. So I'm saying early summer...

ETA: Thanks to Ryan - who has a very good eye for detail, I know now that this was Main Commerce Street, Russellville, AR.

And it could be before 1914...

Fixing my post title now...

I drove downtown tonight to look for the buildings in the picture. All of these buildings (except the one on the far left) are still standing. This is Commerce Street looking South.
