At extreme left, just above center is the St. Charles Church on the southeast corner of Madison and Fourth Street.

At the center of extreme left is the Louisville, New Albany, & Corydon Railroad (L.N.A. & C. R.R.) depot (long building, cut off at left edge of image, that runs parallel with College Avenue in the foreground).

At far right, above center, there looks to be an oil derrick. Above and to the right of the derrick is a long building. Behind this building is what looks to be a church with a steeple. This building looks to be the "Baptist Church" noted in image P0022318.
