This is a recreation of a 1910 panorama of Elm St. I wondered why this particular building was chosen in 1910, then it occurred to me that this was the tallest office/apartment building at the time. The 1910 photo was taken by A.W. Plummer and spans about 270 degrees.
There are only a handful of buildings that are still the same in the 2003 photo. What strikes me about this image is that in both photos on the right, you can see the same hatch that Mr. Plummer and I stepped through 93 years apart. It's still in good shape.
Also note that in the 1910 photo, there appear to be workmen on scaffolding on the City Hall bell tower. Also, you can see the electric light arches on Elm St. that had been installed the year before. Ten years later they had to be removed because they were rusted too much.
