This view of the Baptist Church, the yellow elementary school, and the Academy of Music on Main Street in Northampton, Massachusetts, was taken from the gates at the entrance to Smith College in 1905. Within a few steps a resident of this town could find religion, education, and cultural offerings in these three brick buildings. Notice the tall poles carrying electricity and telephone service on the north side of the street.
