Flashback FridayReturn to Blog
Were you able to guess the location and date of today’s photo?
Today we look at a scene in Maplewood, specifically the corner of Sutton Avenue and Manchester Road looking east in the 1930s. The scene is just a few steps from the Let Them East Art – Heads Will Bowl event happening tonight from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. in downtown Maplewood. Following the parade enjoy live music and entertainment, live art demonstrations and bowling pin art and food & drink specials by Maplewood’s award-winning food purveyors. To get to the event, hop aboard the #57 Maplewood-Wildwood MetroBus route.

This photo is not from the 1930s. The Manchester streetcar turned this corner until 1949 and there are no tracks or streetcar wires in this photo. Also, the bus is probably a post-war model.
