Trying to Identify Intersection in Photo

My father had a small photography business for a while in the late 40s/early 50s in Eldorado. I found a photo among some of his other photos from that time period of an intersection I am trying to identify. My first thought would be Eldorado, but it could be Harrisburg. No street signs appear in the photo. The prominent feature is a Texaco station, situated diagonally on the corner lot. Across the street is Stricklin Studio (currently communicating with relatives of this family also), a building with the name PUTNAM on the front, an R&K Food Market, and on the same side of the street as the Texaco, a Hausser's Ready-to-Wear. Anyone remember an intersection like this?

If you post this on the Eldorado or Harrisburg Facebook I am sure those people could probably tell you too.

Thank you....we did find out the location. It was taken from the second floor of the Flat Iron building, looking down on 4th and Locust in Eldorado. The Flat Iron building and the Texaco station have both since been demolished.
