Once upon a time

Vintage view - Sandy Williams' book, "Images of America - Hinsdale," contains several photographs of what the central business district looked like in the 19th century. "This scene, looking north on Washington Street, was taken about 1880. The trees are the most obvious changes but also the number of buildings and general activity on the street. On the left is one of the downtown's kerosene streetlamps." Do you have a Hinsdale photo that is at least 25 years old? We'd love to share it with our readers. Stop by our office at 7 W.
