Below, the oldest known photo of the entire town of Alex, taken circa 1912, has been annotated for easier identification of landmarks referred to throughout this website. Only a few of the landmarks continue to exist today: The Alex Bank building, the building that likely housed the Alex Tribune, the Ples Williams' home and the Ketchum home.
