VINTAGE SALEM: Down on the Corner
Nelson Dionne gives a look at what Salem used to be.
Nelson Dionne is sharing more of his extensive Salem collection with Patch.
This week, Nelson is giving us a peek at industry in Salem from years past.
Nelson wrote the following after he added a photograph to a blog post from our newest contributor Tom McGovern. This is what Nelson had to say:
"The photo on the top of this article was taken in the spring of 1968. It shows the western side of Lafayette Street. All this was taken down shortly after the construction of the Salem central fire station. Many thanks to George Gagnon for having the good sense to take a few rolls of pre-Urban Renewal Salem for posterity."
Thank you, Nelson for sharing this incredible Salem shot!
