DescriptionSouthbridge en fete - the buildings are covered with flags and buntings. In the foreground is a Southbridge and Sturbridge street car on the track at the corner of the Blanchard block. Many different forms of transportation are shown, including some horse drawn buggies, a horse and rider and some men on bicycles. The track the street car travels on is clearly on view. At the Blanchard building there is a decorated arch connecting the other corner of Main Street. There is a curious feature like a balcony connecting two chimney stacks on the roof of the Blanchard building.
