Main Street, between Princess and Lincoln Streets, 1971

  • Main Street, between Princess and Lincoln Streets, 1971
  • "Local residents gathered along Main Street to watch the Little League parade, which traveled from the Common to the Little League Field behind the former St. Florence Chapel on Del Carmine Street, off Water Street. It is interesting to note that the former Walton Block in the center of the photograph was occupied by the Post Office during the expansion of its current building at the corner of Main Street and Yale Avenue which began in 1970. After weather-related delays, the addition was completed and the Post Office moved from its temporary location in the First National Supermarket in late 1971."
