Going back in the archives this morning for the very first Parkesburg Yesterday series, this one was posted in January 2011.
Occasionally ebay auctions off a piece of Parkesburg memorabilia. This post card depicting Main Street in the early 1900’s looking east was put up for bid yesterday.
Its hard to know the exact date when the picture was taken. The utility poles along the right side of the street provide a clue that it would have been between 1900 and 1910.
The seller is asking $15.99. Let’s hope he gets his asking price and more.
In the meantime we’ll enjoy looking at our town in what must have been simpler times.
