More Views Of Lower Dwight Street/Depot Hill Area

Lower Dwight Street circa early 1900s. Upper photo gives a good glimpse of the First Level canal and a horse cart that must have been the equivalent of today's tractor trailer hauling goods uptown. 

Both pictures show the William Skinner silk factory which is now the location of the Children's Museum and a billboard advertising Dexter's Mothers Bread. (Seminole Bailey Archive)

Boxcars being loaded or unloaded at the rail yard  behind Main street at Depot Hill. The train station and tenement buildings along Lyman street can be seen in the far background.  (Seminole Bailey Archive)

Another view of the "Gateway To The City" at Main & Dwight streets taken at the base of the footbridge at Depot Hill.  (Seminole Bailey Archive)
