Picturing the Past 81: Way back in WartracePosted Tuesday, October 5, 2010, at 11:44 AM
An early photo of Wartrace. (Photo submitted by Nancy Phillips)
It looks like the only paved road is around the railroad tracks, but the town does have telephone poles.
I'd guess this photo's from sometime in the early 1900s.
Seems odd to see Wartrace without the bandstand structure on the main drag. But even more strange, where are the vehicles - horse-drawn or whatever - and the people? I almost wonder if there was some sort of road construction going on when this was shot.
