Description

SV092 — Nelson Dionne Collection. View looking at a gabled business block at Town House Square on the northwest corner of Washington Street and Essex St. The block was home to businesses such as Joseph S. Rowe's hairdresser shop at 35 Washington St., Moses Sibley's tailor shop at 41 ½ Washington St., and C.S. Buffum's casket store at 43 Washington St. among many others. A sign for F.S. Peck's adjacent clothing store at 234 Essex St. is visible in the background.

Published by J.W. & J.S. Moulton, 256 Essex Street, Salem, Mass., c. 1873-76.

The gabled block appears to have been gone by 1872, being replaced by the Northey Building which is also non-extant. The 1885-built Endicott Building, in a renovated state, is now present on the site.
