PARKERSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA:   A VINTAGE PORTRAIT

MARKET BETWEEN SIXTH AND SEVENTH



This 1930s photo, shot from the Sixth Street railroad bridge, is looking north on Market
Street, showing the Chancellor Hotel and, beyond, Union Trust Building. The streetcar
tracks visibly split up so that two trolleys can run north and south simultaneously.
(For more streetcar information, see CORNER OF SEVENTH AND MARKET STREETS.)





Market Street is quiet (and perhaps muddy) in this early morning shot around 1905.
The City didn't pave Market until 1920.

opening years of the twentieth century. (Photo courtesy of Amy Johnson.)
