Thanks to a local historian who has been a wealth of knowledge to me I received a picture to share with you. There is no date with the picture but from its content early 1900's'. The R H Smith factory would have been just to the left of this scene. At that time Smith was one of our leading industries and he was Mayor of the city. This was the Patriots Day Parade.
