From time to time, we like to share a “Main Street” image from the past to honor and celebrate how important local businesses are to each one of our communities. Today’s “Your Main Street” photo is of Newburyport, Massachusetts.
Published in 1906, this image shows Newburyport’s Market Square full of small and independent businesses that served the town in the early 20th century.
Today, Market Square is still a place that the people of Newburyport can go to shop and support their local economy. What businesses exist there now? Let us know by sending in photos of the present day businesses that live in these classic brick buildings.
Do you have any pictures of Main Street from the 50’s or 60’s? How much has the street changed since the early 1900’s? Tag your image with #YourMainStreet so we can take a look and share it.
