Picturing the Past 83: A look at Lane StreetPosted Tuesday, October 19, 2010, at 9:54 AM

This looks almost like it could be from the intersection of Deery Street and East Lane Street looking, as the caption on the photo reads, west. The northwest side of that intersection, which today is occupied by an office building, had an large, old home known as the Ruth home until the 1970s, set back off the road -- notice what appears to be a large yard at right center.
The old homes along North Main Street continue to disappear. But the area between Madison, Deery and East Lane Streets east of the post office and west of Bryant Street, which is designated as a historic district, retains much of its original look.
Picturing the Past is featured each Tuesday in this blog. Reader contributions are welcome.
