Mural on Hamilton Street, Circa 1972

by Laurel | January 27th, 2012

Another of my father’s photos. Hamilton Street I believe, correct me if I am wrong. Perhaps I’ll drive by and photograph this building later today if it still exists — because yes, I am in Holyoke today!

    I was raised in So. Holyoke, left in 1957, can’t quite place this location. Was Hamilton a One-Way street in ’72?

  2. I didn’t even think of the one-way aspect of the street Norm. You may be correct, considering the image has the car parked on that side of the street, probably would have been one-way. Location is the corner of Hamilton and So. Summer St.
