Taken in my old hometown of Springfield, Massachussets and printed from an original 5x7 glass negative in my collection. The envelope protecting the negative is labeled "Corner of State & Dwight Str. City. Old house occupied by Mrs. Gordon and owned by RB & Co. May 29, 1890 4:30 AM." On the telegraph pole to the right of the building is a broadside for Edison's Talking Doll, which was only in the market a brief few weeks in May 1890 before being recalled. | Click image for Comments. | Home | Browse All Photos
