Hobart Then and Now: Main and Second, Southeast Corner

Circa 1907-8 and 2010

The older image comes from a postcard in the Hobart Historical Museum files. On the back some anonymous person noted the location and the names of the people in the picture: sitting in the car are George Pederson [or Pedersen?] and Gertrude Scharbach, and on the sidewalk are Lizzie and Mary. Lizzie and Mary who, the anonymous writer didn't mention. George's wife's name was Lizzie, but I don't have a clue about Mary.

It's hard for me to believe that this is actually Main and Second. There was such a lovely building there, and they knocked it down?
