Nome to Be Rebuilt with Wide Streets

Issue 10 and Volume 87.

Nome to Be Rebuilt with Wide Streets A new Nome, Alaska, is to arise from the ashes of the $3,000,000 conflagration which practically destroyed that community. Plans were completed by an FERA committee for a new city with wide streets, a new business district and modern buildings. Streets will be ninety feet wide, and Front Street will be moved fifty feet back from the beach of the Bering Sea. Work will be started in the spring, but now temporary structures are being erected in which to house the business places during the winter.
