Next, a couple of photos of Main Street from the year 2000. Looking west along the street, a busy scene with car parked on the street before the parking bays were added. The scene is quite familiar otherwise.
And also, at that same location looking the opposite way. Do you remember McDade’s Licensed Grocers and the Post Office next to McLeans Newsagents?
