1925 - Street Scene in Front of the Wadsworth-Longfellow House and MHS Headquarters

Drivers required parking places, gasoline stations, and better roads for their cars. These needs quickly changed the city landscape.

Gradually workers could commute into the city and they worked in offices in taller buildings.

In this view, a hard-top coupe is parked in front of the entrance to the MHS headquarters.
