This, of course, is Wigwam #2 in Cave City. I believe it is from the National Archives. The photographer was Marion Post (later Wallcot). Ms Post was a photographer for the national Photography project a WPA agency. She came through Cave City and Horse Cave in the summer of 1941. In the national archives the location is incorrectly listed as Bardstown. She shot a number of 31-W and Main Street photographs in Horse Cave. Those are mis-identified as being in Cave City.
On this jaunt and another Ms Post wound up in Breathitt County. First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt had made a widely publicized visit to Breathitt at the urging of Mrs. Marie Turner, superintendant of schools there.
Ms Post and other photographers in the project would stay in the field and mail unprocessed film back to Washington on a weekly basis. That was the source for many of the mis-identifications in their work.
The Horse Cave Main Street photo clearly shows rival grocery stores (Kroger and A&P) next door in the Thomas Building as well as a number of liquor stores up the street.

Sanford, this angle would be looking north, sorta kinda toward tower knob. Yes, those hills would fit.

Yes, this is Cave City! At the Wig Wams in Horse Cave the "Main" Wig Wam building faced "Caddie-Corner" to the 31-E highway and HWY 218. I can still remember that (man I'm getting old).
