For those burning to know the answer to the contest question, the picture (featured in our banner above), is of State Street (looking West along the south side of the street) in Salem. The Livesly building is in the left corner. The Spa Restaurant to the right, is now an alley way, but the buildings further to the left include what is now the Wild Pear and Cooke’s Stationary. The Ladd & Bush Bank can be seen down at the end of the block.
A big thank you, too, to the Heritage Programs division of OPRD for hosting the event.
