Center Street Winter Scene, c. 1900

This view depicts Center Street as seen looking northwestward from the corner of School Street after a mid-winter storm. On the left is the snow whitened front of the Church of Our Saviour at the corner of Center and Union Streets, while a portion of the Benjamin F. Tripp House is readily visible at the center of the photograph . At the far right is the Glidden Building, known at the time of the photograph, however, as the Sullivan Building. The building's owner Dennis D. Sullivan had a law office on the second floor and his sign is prominent on the corner of the building. The other buildings in the photograph have long since disappeared.
