The Masonic Block Under ConstructionHere is a 1900 view of the Masonic Block under construction. Note the two young ladies enjoying the view from an upper window.
Main Street Southborough 1930sThis extremely rare postcard view shows the railroad crossing at Main Street. To the right is the Sealey block, which housed various businesses including a grocery store and a blacksmith shop. To the left is Southborough Drug Store, and just visible on the building a sign for a cafe selling "Deerfoot Farms Products"
Southborough Station and Train, 1930sThis Depression era view shows a steam train crossing main street.
Southborough StationSouthborough's Queen Anne inspired station is seen here, with a view of the brand new fire station (now Southborough pizza, peeking out from behind.
The Masonic BlockBuilt in 1900, this handsome structure burnt down in 1915, but in its short life housed the Masonic Hall as well as the Post Office. In this card a young man (probably a St Mark's student) plaintively asks his his mother "Dear Mama, won't you please send me the money for my tire while I am down here?" Some things never change.
Southborough Drugs, Main StreetThis building, built after the Masonic Block burned in 1915, is now home to Lamy's insurance.
Main Street Looking WestThis 1929 view shows the other side of the building that housed the Southborough Drugstore. It replaced the Masonic Block that burnt down in 1915. It is now Lamy Insurance.
The Old Gulf StationThe Gulf Station stood on what is now an empty plot of land across from the Marlborough Savings Bank. It was previously a black smith shop attached to the Sealey Block. The lot remains empty due to petroleum leakage into the soil/
