Wakefield Square, circa 1925

Title:
  • Wakefield Square, circa 1925
Description:
  • "This picture of downtown Wakefield was taken on the corner of Chestnut Street looking south on Main Street. The buildings at the left side of the photo were razed in the late 1930s. Taking a look down Main Street, one can see L.L. McMaster newsdealer and stationer, DeCecca Food Shoppe, Boothby's, Smith's Drug Store, Curley Bros. Coal, Young Sign Studio, and other well-known businesses. The top floor of the Wakefield Block, which was removed, is still intact, and the Wakefield Town Hall, dedicated in 1872, is still standing. The cars in front of McMaster's are parallel parked, while others are straight."
