The brick building to the right of center is the one and only bank Iberia had. The vault can be seen in the back left hand corner of the building. At the back of the bank on Main Street, a garage and dentist’s office burned.
The first building is the dentist’s office and the garage is above that. The steeple of the Baptist Church can be seen in the distance.
Main Street—Adams & Casey Store with their safe on the front porch. The white house at extreme right was the home of Josephine Shockley Blankenship.
Eads Garage - Iberia
The front foundation is what remained of Loren Atwell’s home. The old truck at the back of the building also burned—the man’s wife got excited and couldn’t find the keys to the truck. The foundation at left is what remained of the residence of Lee Atwell.
