I need help identifying this picture of Main St. Monongahela in a postcard from the 19930′s or 1940′s. Here are a few clues to orient yourself:
- I believe this picture was taken early in the morning, thus you would be looking south on rt 88 (toward Charleroi)
- I think the building on the right is where the current First Niagra Bank is located at the corner of 4th and Main Streets, right across the street from where Mc Donald’s is now.
- Click on the picture to enlarge it and you will see a sign for “Polaski’s News Store”. The small light colored building must have been torn down when the Niagra Bank building was built.
- I think the large building in the center of the picture is the Alexander Bank at the corner of 3rd and Main Streets. The Alexander Bank was owned by the Alexander family. (Click here to see the old Alexander home)
Can you name or do you have memories of any of the buildings in the picture above?
