Kersten at the Nashua Public Library has been very helpful with access, scans and cutline information. Here’s what is known about this image, blended with one I took today:
“Main Street” by Frank M. Ingalls A 3-story building with a cupola on top at 223 Main Street, the site of Sovereign Bank. There is a diner to the left of building and a small shop to the right (“Diamonds” “Sale”). On the right is 221 Main St which currently houses Beckonings, a gift shop.
I’ve been trying to find a standard treatment for all the images that will run in the paper (beginning tomorrow, April 30, 2013) and I can’t seem to settle on one. Sometimes a solid image, deposited onto the current photo, is the way to go. I’ve since tried a more complex blend- feathering edges and incorporating key elements in both the new and old photographs. This one follows that style and, depending on what I have to work with, may be the default style.
