354 Washington St., circa 1872
House of Charles L. Palmer, carriage painter, harness maker, and manufacturer of children’s carriages (pictured out front). Charles was in his mid-fifties and may be standing out front. His son, Edward, also worked in the business and lived in the house. Partially visible in the rear is the building that would have served as the workshop. Across the street is the entrance to the old circular drive of the library.
