Post Card Photos of Early 1900’s

December 24, 1064

J. C. Nolan, 121 W. 7th St back in 1964 supplied these old  photos to the Star Gazette in 1964 showing the downtown area from the early 1900’s. They were taken from the courthouse cupola. This is a very rare view as it shows the 200 block of Vermillion Street which has since been torn down to make way for the approaches of the High Bridge. Note the horses hitched along the street in the photo.

This view looks north, towards the heart of downtown Hastings with the view of the Spiral Bridge in the background.

Looking northeast from the courthouse, the Masonic Hall is most prominent in the foreground and also the Wright & Austin and opera house building is shown in the distance.
