Title:
View of Southbridge from Cliff Street of the Crane, River, Pine street areas, including St. Mary's Church and Old Notre Dame Church and the Quinebaug River
Description:
Quinebaug River flows in the foreground, with a view of the riverbank. Railroad track runs parallel to the river along Crane and River Streets. Two groupings of warehouse buildings are located between the railroad track and Crane street. The steeple in the background is the Methodist Church, Main Street. In the foreground is St. Mary's Church on Hamilton Street. Moving along Hamilton Street, the rectory is somewhat obscured, the next visible building is St. Peter's center (the original Roman Catholic Church in town) with the tower and cross on top. The school with the cupola and mansard roof is on the corner of Pine and Hamilton Streets. Old Notre Dame is on Pine Street with the high steeple, prior to building the cathedral-style structure (1916), on Main Street. Domestic dwellings of various styles are also on view.
