Sanford Fire Insurance Map, 1932. The dividing point. The "Diamond". On the left bottom of the map we see Market Street. It divides into two streets on on each side of the Little Building. To the left of the Little Building is Dresden Ave. To the right of the Little Building is St Clair Ave.

Market street was the dividing point betwen east and west. Streets east of Market were designated east 6th, east 5th and so on, after 1900. West of Market would have been West 6th, West 5th and so on, after 1900.

On the far right of the map is intersection of Broadway, Washington Street and East 6th..

The fountain as it appeared in the 50s was directly opposite of the Little building on 6th Street.
