"This is on the easterly side of Madison Avenue, the premises now occupied by the Chinese laundry and Vigue's barber shop. Morris, the proprietor, a Greek, stands at the left. The young man with the straw hat is Webb Keyes. Next to him is Richard Collins. The young man with his arms folded is Marshall C. Viles; at his left, partially seated, is Wesley Grover, now of Pleasant Pond. Morris died many years ago. Kyes is still a resident of Skowhegan. Collins' residence is unknown. Marshall C. Viles, long in the plumbing business, lives on Coburn Avenue.Show Details
A peanut roaster, now somewhat obsolete, may be seen on the sidewalk at the right of the picture. The frame of photographs indicate a studio, which at the time was carried on upstairs in the next block, unboubedly conducted by W. H. Langley. Circus poster appears in the window, with the date of Friday, August 10. This picure was probably taken in 1888."
