Stroll down Mariposa Street
Posted Jul 05, 2010
Fresno’s Mariposa Street, looking east from Broadway, circa 1890. The years from 1885 to 1890 saw extraordinary growth in Fresno. The population grew from 3,500 to 10,890 residents. Along a six block stretch of Mariposa Street (as seen in this photo) one million dollars was expended on business, bank and hotel construction. Photograph from Fresno Historical Society Archives.
