316 East Main Street - 1936

Here's the De Saussure House from Tuesday's post about 10 or 15 years later in 1936. In the photo at the bottom of the post, you can see the Great Depression took it's toll. The house looks largely abandoned, except for the used tire store (25 cents and up!) in the basement.

A few things I really like about this photo are the men hanging out on the side of the building:

The "ghost" man in front of the house:

And the dismembered ghost leg in front of the car:

Unfortunately, the house was demolished 4 years after this picture was taken. Click the photo below for the high resolution image.
