Another great local postcard from the Boston Public Library, from a past date known only to those who are skilled in car-bonnet-dating. This is from Third Street, looking east up Fulton Street. On the left, you can see a cigar store, the Fanny Farmer store, and a store called Weinberg’s. The lovely buildings in the left foreground are no longer there, replaced by the Uncle Sam Garage. On the right, Frear’s Troy Cash Bazaar. Mid-background is the building housing the NIte Owl News at the corner of Fourth. Up the hill, beyond the approach, depending on when the postcard image was taken: Troy Hospital, or, after 1922, Catholic Central High School. After 1952, it became RPI’s West Hall.
