About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

York Village: 1908

York Village: 1908

Circa 1908. "Street in York Village, York, Maine." Where perambulating is encouraged and moseying is mandatory. 8x10 glass negative. View full size.

 

Slippy is right.

The house still stands! I think this is the pic Slippy would like to have posted. I just looked at the google map of the village and saw the streets still meet in much the same way. Street view revealed the house.

Nope, not the same spot

My hometown once again featured on Shorpy! ( I actually registered to this website because of another York picture that was posted a while ago).
That image is not the google street view you posted. There were either other troughs like that around town, or it was moved from here to its present location.
Judging by the houses and street curvature, I would think it's looking down Long Sands rd. from the "confederate" soldier, near where they built the new library. How do I post google street views to show what I'm talking about?

A reminder of our past.

My guess is that thing is a horse trough. There are quite a few around New England usually made of granite and often with inscriptions. I have seen quite a few being used for flower displays usually by local garden groups.

When I see one it always invokes a bit of our past into our present day.

Don't know what that thing is...

or if it has been moved; but this seems to be the old part of town.

Elephantine Giants

Wow, look at all the big American elms. When will we have a time machine to take a walk up that road?
