Vintage Salem Morning!

Essex Street during its heyday. Most of the shops began to close in 1950 because of the digging of the current train tunnel under Washington Street. The old Derby/West Oak Knoll mansion property had opened to a series of outdoor shops which later got a roof put on between stores to create the North Shore Mall. This site stole all of the shopping from Salem.
