Stone and Goodspeed Livery Stable, 316 Washington St., 1874
Looking from Holden St., next to Town Hall. On the left, at 312 Washington St., is the entrance and sign for Bowker & Lyon, Carpenters and Builders. They later occupied a structure behind this building and had a larger sign projecting from the building that is off screen on the left. To the right is the Stone and Goodspeed Livery Stable at 316 Washington St. The stable, later replaced by a brick structure that still stands, remained a business there until the early 1930s.

The stable provided multiple services for both businesses and individuals. The S.S. Pierce Company boarded its horses and delivery wagons there, horse-drawn taxis could be called, horses were available for rent. The wagon of a boarder is seen out front: Horace James, Mason, who had a business office nearby in the Village.
