AUGUST 3, 1944 FAMILIAR NANTY-GLO STREET SCENE

The view shown here doesn’t exactly do justice to the site. It was taken from the top of the hill in front of the high school, looking down Chestnut Street. Some of the business section is shown in the distance. Excavation of the hill is now in progress at the corner of Chestnut and Second streets for the erection of a new business and apartment building after the war when building material is available by Fred Edwards.
