Farmington Opera House Sepia Souvenir Postcard

Title

Farmington Opera House Sepia Souvenir Postcard

Description

A Farmington NH Opera House sepia souvenir postcard. The view is of the front and left side of the building from Main Street. The three story building with an internal mezzanine or balcony was brick with wooden trim. It featured many double high windows on the front and both sides. It had a simple single story portico with a small roof balustrade. Four chimneys can be sen in the photo. The photo is set sometime in winter as snow is on the ground. Trees and surrounding building can be seen in the background. A February 10, 1928 fire effectively burned the Farmington Opera House to the ground. The library and town offices, along with most books, artifacts, and town records, from earlier periods perished in the fire.
