A Place In Time


This photo is of Franklin Street, directly across from the courthouse, around 1905.

This photo is a bit more recent, although Edward Jones is no longer located on the corner.  You can see the differences in the buildings.

Note that in the early 1900s photo, the building we all know as J.C. Penney, had not yet been constructed.  It is a bit difficult to see, however, if you zoom in, you can see a fence around that area.  There is a woman and child walking on the sidewalk directly in front of the fence.

This is a photo of Winchester past.

Can you identify the location?

Where would the photographer have been standing to take it?

What would be different if a photo was taken from the same spot today?
