Looking Up a Specific Address
So, for example, if I wanted to focus on the location "816 Main St," I would search for it first, and then click on the photo of "Wormoudt and Kempkes Clothing Store," as I can easily tell it represents the building address for which I am searching. From within that photo's description, I would then click on the address "816 MAIN ST" This makes sure that you're just focusing on that one location. See the screenshot below.
Keep in mind that pictures that include a "row" of buildings, such as a shot looking down the 800 block of Main Street, may also reference your chosen address because the location is included in the shot.
There's More to be Done
A Few Parting Notes
Which is all a way of saying, whether the development of the project continues after August 31 or not, the initial project has been a success by anyone's standards. The work that's been done will remain online and available indefinitely, and we can be proud that a city like Pella values its history and has so many amazing historical documents. It's a privilege to be able to work with them.
