Seaboard Victorian?

Main Street, U.S.A. Postcard
0110201 dp 79908-c
This opening day series postcard could be considered unique for a variety of reasons: the relatively empty street, the awkward clumping of guests or odd cropping (what is happening in the right-hand corner?)  But I find the description on the back to be intriguing.  We hear about how Walt's childhood home of Marceline, MO is the inspiration for Main Street, U.S.A.  So I am having trouble making the connection to the "Seaboard Victorian" architecture.  Thoughts?
