What Roads and Buildings Are in This Photo?

Do you know where this photo was taken? What are the roads and buildings in the photo? When was it taken?

Here is the latest edition of the popular regular feature "Then and Now.”

We'll start on Tuesday by showing you a picture from the past in either Hamilton or Wenham. Then you'll have a chance to guess where it was taken and can come back to get the answer on Thursday.

Plus, you will see a picture of it as it looks today.

In this week’s photo, can you name the roads in the photo? How about the buildings? What are some of these building used for today? 

Please make all guesses in the comments section below.

Intersection of Arbor and Main St. Car Barn lot is on the left, 2nd building on the right is the old fire station, next is the Water Dept building that I believe was moved to the Museum and after that is Porter's store. I don't know what are in those buildings now.

In Terms of timing- I'll say 1890-1900- turn of century... I have a picture of my house, in my house taken about 1900.

I agree on the location and the date. The first building on the right is gone. The second one is now Viola Lovely, then Grassy Roots.

You all might mention that the picture is in Wenham looking Northeast. Also mention the streetcar tracks going into the car barn to the left and going to Hamilton.
