THROWBACK THURSDAY

This week’s Throwback Thursday Pic takes us to a community of Maidstone located just outside of Windsor. This image is of the Maidstone Post Office and general store, taken sometime in first couple of decades of the 20th Century. This photograph provides a glimpse of rural life of the period, with horse drawn carriages and an early model automobile parked out front and children lined up posing for the photographer. This scene captures the more layback feel and none of the hustle and bustle that would have been caught in an urban street scene. If you are more interested in other historic images that can be found in your Community Archives, please visit the library’s digital exhibit “Windsor’s History and Pictures” found at https://windsorpubliclibrary.contentdm.oclc.org/.
