Looking north on Main Street from Bridge. The building on the right is Molly Maquires's today. The tall building on the left was an iron company shop but I forget which one.

That is looking down North Main street towards the "Low Bridge". Picture taken next to what is now Molly Maguires

It is indeed Main Street, looking north from the sidewalk alongside Molly Maguire's. The tall building on the left was the foundry's Pattern Storage building, where the foundry parking lot is today.

I wonder if the gasoline storage tank is still under the sidewalk?

Yes - it is indeed North Main Street looking toward the "Low Bridge" over French Creek. The large tall building in the background was what was commonly referred to as the Pattern House, as I recall. Notice the old brick sidewalks! Some things really are cyclical, aren't they?!?!
