Title:
The Armory at the corner of Hook and Central streets Southbridge Massachusetts
Description:
The Armory in Southbridge at the corner of Central and Hook streets is on view. The building is constructed of brick. A grand keystone arch with two towers and crenellations are the dominant features of the structure. Steps lead from Central Street through the arch. A flag of the United States flies from the side of the building. Some pedestrians are on the left, one pushing a bicycle. One of the houses in the Twinehurst development by American Optical Company is on the right, near the Central Street bridge. There are electricity poles and wires in evidence. On the other corner of Hook Street, stands a three-story house. This area of Southbridge is known as The Flats.
