Every Monday we share an image on the Essex on Lake Champlain Facebook page and invite our viewers to play some Vintage Essex Trivia. What do you recognize in this photo? When do you think it was taken? Which streets are we seeing here?
We had one guess from the community that I believe may be correct:
Dianne Lansing: Is this Shipyard Lane with the nail factory on the far right? Shipyard Lane and it wasn’t paved. Was it called Church St. then?
Do you agree? What do you think?
If that is the old Essex Horse Nail Factory in the background this would date the photo to pre-1918 as the factory burned down in that year.
Do you have any thoughts to share? Please leave a comment below!
