I live at 54 Elm Street (cir.1897 renovated on 1863 home that still supports much of the foundation) . The first picture appears to be within the first block off Main Street. The second picture is confusing since I do not recognize any of the bldgs and the long stretch. At first the house on the left resembles the Worcester Club but in looking at the old maps 1870 & 1911, I do not recall the church in the picture. Any Thoughts from anyone where this picture may have been taken.

My grandparents home was directly across the street from the Worcester Club. We had Christmas dinner there often as I was growing up. Suckling pig, carried around the table with an apple in its mouth and a cranberry necklace. Just like Charles DIckens. The building you point out surely does look like the Worcester Club as I remember it.But, that does not look like a private home........they lived on Oak St.

In reference to the second photo, I agree that the building on the left is The Worcester Club. My mother worked there for 20 years and as a child I was there quite often for ice cream sundae treats. We used to live on Chatham Place just behind St. Pauls Cathedral, Rectory and School. If you look at the picture of the original Bancroft School (circa 1915) what looks like a church accross the street could be one of its buildings. I do recall the The Bancroft School being accross from the Worcester Club.

I love the second picture. I lived at Danforth Hall directly across from the Worcester Club 1979-1981 while going to Becker Jr. College. I would walk by the Worcester Club and always dreamed of going in there to see the inside of the beautiful building (This was before women were even allowed in the Club). I now work for a member of the Club and we go every year for our Christmas party. The Worcester Club is a beautiful building

I can confirm that it is the Worcester Club building. I carefully checked it out last week. An amazing picture.

View from Fruit St looking east along Elm St shows Worcester Club on left at 59 Elm St corner of Oak St, right side of picture shows the home of M.O.Moen 60 Elm St. Other picture from Chestnut St looking east down Elm St left side 1st building is Elks lodge, right side Library, left side Church of Unity (became Salvation Army building).

Regarding the Church of the Unity which can be seen in one of the views... Edward Everett Hale was pastor here beginning in 1846. He is the author of the famous book "The Man Without A Country".
