From the viewpoint of S. Winooski Ave., this historic image shows the cobble stoned Main St. as it once was. Parked cars sit on both sides of the trolley tracks leading up the incline. In the left of the picture, one can see the Strong Theatre next to the Chilton Paint Co. In front of the building and advertisements for Kenton's "Father and Son" are plastered in a telephone booth. In the distance, beyond the U.S. Post Office and Customs House, cafes and various shops can be seen on the left side of the street. On the opposite side of the street, brick buildings housing other shops on the ground level can be seen. In the distance, at the corner of Church St. in front of City Hall, a sign reading "SWEET SHOP" can be seen.

This photo shows brick paving on Main Street, not cobble stones.
