Lucky for us, people just couldn’t stop taking pictures of Mashell Ave. throughout the years. This one was taken around 1915. The cards were simple, the sidewalks were wood and the road was still dirt.
To get some perspective, you would be standing in the intersection of Center and Mashell, looking up toward the high school. On the right, up the street, you can make out the Methodist Church.
If you’ve got a great old shot of Mashell, let me know — even if it’s from 1975. I’d love to post it.
