This is in Taunton, but a great picture. Love that the building is still there!
Morton Block, Corner of Main and Union Streets, 1909
This familiar downtown landmark has stood at the corner of Main and Union Streets for 180 years. When it was built in 1840, Martin Van Buren was president and there were only 26 states in the Union. From the time of its construction until the present day, the building has accommodated businesses on the first floor and apartments upstairs.
According to the older photo, taken in 1909, F.K. Wood’s grocery store window was advertising spinach at 12¢ a package, lettuce at 5¢ a head, and celery for 12¢ a bunch. What the well-dressed young man was waiting for is anybody’s guess.
