Ocean Avenue Crossing
Last month, we featured the Green Bean cottage on Ocean Avenue. This month, we turn our camera from about that same spot, perhaps retreat a few more years in time, and look down the street toward the water.
This photo is probably from the late 1920's.
As noted in last month's history shot of the Green Bean Cottage, the traffic pattern for Higgins included cross or diagonal streets. The left to right dirt roadway here is crossing from what is now upper Pearl Street and heading right towards Houghton Street.
Beyond the tree growth, just imagine how much nicer Higgins would look today without all of the telephone and utility lines! This picture was taken on March 23, 2004.
