Douglas Shoe

This is the Douglas Shoe Factory in Brockton. It's been torn down in past few years but the houses are still there - check them out on Google Street View - Spark Street just north of Field Street

The Yellow Sentinel has a name...

I know the unasked question on everyone's lips is:

What kind of traffic signal is that?

It's an Eaglelux, one of the first that the Eagle Signal company made. Yup. Okay, so now you know. My work here is done.

BTW, keep up the excellent work nameless Shorpy minions!!

Holyoke?

Looks like Holyoke, MA to me.

The colours are amazing

I feel like I could reach out and touch that sky.

Genius

It's such a simple photograph, but it's so amazing! I didn't know about Jack Delano before Shorpy. Thank you so much. Keep them coming!
