My Dad's Home Town

My father was born in Saratoga Springs in 1919. His mother and father were both born there. Looking at this picture and the other recent Saratoga Springs picture, I like to imagine my grandmother's aunt (of whom I have a lot of pictures) walking along the street. Her name was Emma Doolittle and she married Albert Freeman in the 1880's in this town. Saratoga Springs is still lovely, but the United States Hotel is no more. I believe it was replaced by a grocery store and parking lot. An incredible loss of history.
