Main Street Looking South

A tranquil tree-lined Main Street looking south along the west side of the Street.

At the far end of the sidewalk, we can see the Second Empire rooflines of the rowhouses built by the Speight Wagon Company in 1895 to house the Company's employees. The white house in the centre of the photograph is the Wedding Cake House at 48 Main Street North, built in c. 1870, and well-known for its elaborate gingerbread. To its right is the circular corner tower of the Queen Anne Revival style house built at 54 Main in 1910 by Ernest Crosby.
