Looking Back Jan. 26

This is an old photo of bustling Main Street before the fire in 1933. It’s a snowy scene giving us a glimpse of everyday turn-of-the-century life in Ellsworth. Women stroll the sidewalks in beautiful Victorian attire including fancy hats and full dresses. Brick buildings such as the Union Trust building and the Peters building by the river that still stand are visible in the background. A horse pulling a cart is in the foreground outside of the livery and boarding stable.
