North Adams Ladies' Soldiers Aid Society

The ladies had erected a monument to Union soldiers of North Adams. It still stands. More here.

What a ride!

2 HP (literally), power steering, overstuffed seats, and ample "fuel" capacity.

Off duty

I see Santa Claus crossing the street.

A matter of perspective

The man sitting in the wagon on the far right appears to have his arm around his Horse.

the Shorpy sites in the 21st century

I appreciate seeing how they look today, fellow Shorpies BUT...am I the only one who laments the loss of small town charm in most of these updates? I have YET to see a picture where I say to myself "wow, this mostly empty-except for cars and a few pedestrians-street looks soooo much more interesting 100 plus years later".

It's "font-tastic"!

So much to take in on this photo: The Geezer, the Battle-axe, the over laden hay wagon. And the fonts. Ohhhh the fonts...You want serif? We got some serious serif. You want non-serif? We got that too.
One of my favorites. Thanks Dave.

Many of the buildings remain
