Now In Process of Erection

Here is a nifty old penny-postage post card that I found when scrounging around in a drawer full of old postcards at a local marine surplus store. Interesting to see it when new, before it became neighbors to the newer court buildings and the courthouse parking garage!

Nice find. The LOC website has some info on the previous courthouse at 169 Middle Street, which was built after the 1866 fire, and was razed in 1965. It also served as the post office for 63 years. The present courthouse was opened for business circa 1904-1905, but the probate records remained at the old City Hall, which burned in 1908.
