Downtown 1889 — Barrel hoops, hay bales and a cow change hands

  • I am reminded of the Broadway tune, “Get Me to the Church on Time.”
  • This carriage was bound for a lot farther distance than South Glens Falls.
  • It was a busy day at the hay market on South Street.
  • This 85-year-old up-county resident witnessed the steady acceleration in pace of doing business.
  • I wonder if the hotel guests noticed the difference?
  • A good deal:
  • Which side of Glen Street gets the most sunlight?
