North Main Street - Elgin Park [circa 1930's ]

Discovered in the Elgin Park archives was this transparency from the mid 1930's. On the envelope, which contained the photo, was written: North Main Street; the only one way street in Elgin Park.

Perhaps this was from some town meeting for the argument to make the street a two way thoroughfare.

Whatever the reason for it's creation, it was an unexpected glimpse into past. And in color, too!

 

North Main Street has been a two way road for as long as anyone can remember, so the meeting must have been a success.

 

When viewing the photo, it's clear the town hasn't changed that much, which is somewhat comforting.

  

The diecast cars are from the Franklin Mint and the Danbury Mint.
