Park Avenue West 1911

MANSFIELD -- Here are two photos of Park Avenue West in the snow: one taken from the square looking west in 1913, and one taken from Bowman Street looking east in 1911. Comparing them with the same stretch of pavement today, it is simple enough to see one great glaring difference: today there are no streetcar tracks.
