Elms Before the Blight

Previously the street tree of choice for their quick growth and elegant vase shape that shaded streets and sidewalks.

Great Exposure

Nice camera work given the angle of the sun.

Waiting for someone to identify the car

Looks to my non-expert eyes like a relative of the unfortunate Chrysler Royal.

Horace H Holcomb House at 75 Main Street, barely visible through a street fair. It is the one at the right enter in the original.

The Vertical House

Looks just like a cookie jar I once had. What a lovely and peaceful neighborhood scene this depicts on a balmy New England Spring day. "I was walking down the street one day, in the merry, merry month of May." Wish I was there.
