Lyman & Canal streets 1890s - 1900s

The Lyman Street Bridge over the Second Level Canal looking southeast. The Baptist Church which was razed to make way for the Hotel Monat years later is in the background.  Notice the B&M overpass bridge is wooden.                                                                                                                                                                                        

A photo taken of the same area in the 1900s shows the wooden bridge has been replaced.

The Second Level Canal looking northeast showing the Hadley Thread Mills on the left, and the Holyoke Street Railway car barns to the right. A trolley heads south on Canal street.
