Keene still has charm

As described by The_Bishop, the gateposts are on the left and the Carrol House Art Gallery is on the right. All the action down the street in the c1905 photo, identified by Ray D. O-Czech is probably due to that being a traffic circle, which survives. The church steeple is still roughly a half-mile in front of you.

The gate says it all

The stone gatepost with the pyramid-shaped top that's visible between the trees on the left gives away the exact location - those posts (there is actually a total of four of them) are still today standing in front of the Hale Building of Keene State College, on the corner of Main Street and Winchester Street. And the house on the right is also still existing, it's the Carrol House Art Gallery of the college today.


All of the action ...

is down at the other end of the street! (Click to embiggen.)
