SV068 — Nelson Dionne Collection. View looking down Essex Street, to the east, from the Price Building on Washington Street. The First Church building, post its c. 1874 renovation, is visible directly to the right.
Published by Frank Cousins at 172 Essex Street, Salem, Mass., 1876. Photographed by J.W. & J.S. Moulton.
Owing to the height of the shot, the view appears to have been taken from the top of the four-story Price Building, which stood from 1875 to 1969 at the corner of Essex and Washington where Lappin Park now stands.
View is a duplicate of SV067, and also the same as SV058 published by J.W. & J.S. Moulton.
