Train Station and surrounding Area circa early 1920s

In this early 1920s aerial photo looking northward. we get a nice look at the area around the train station.

On the west side of the tracks across from the station is the Hotel Monet. South of the hotel is a row of business buildings including The Chase & Coolidge Co., J. Russell & Co., United Box and Paper Co, and Quirk Paper Co. Many of these buildings still stand today.

On the west side of Main street is the Whiting Paper Company and the various factories to the north.
Also in view are both the Mt. Tom and Mt. Holyoke mountain ranges.
