Children Playing on Main Street

Title:
Children Playing on Main Street
Town:
Westfield
County:
Orleans
State:
Vermont
Date:
1907 - 1919
Description:
This postcard was sent October 1, 1919. It captures a couple boys playing in the dirt street with wooden rims. A couple younger children look on from the sidewalk while a couple women look on from a nearby front porch. You can clearly see a few houses with porches on the right side of the road. One of the porches is screened. Trees and a dirt path or sidewalk run along the road. Power lines criss-cross the street. An automobile is visible in the background. Esther Munroe Swift writes on 2006-3-14: The boys are rolling hoops. In the far rear left one can see an open touring car and part of the Town Common. This is probably mid-summer judging from the abundance of the foliage.
