Talbot Historical Society Project Rewind: Making Way for Safeway

This Talbot Historical Society H. Robins Hollyday Collection photo was taken c.1968 of the Calvary Methodist Church on North Washington Street, Easton, Maryland being demolished to make room for the new Safeway structure! The Calvary Methodist Church was built in 1830. It was sold in the late 1950’s when three Easton Methodist churches joined to build St. Mark’s United Methodist Church. The church housed the Easton YMCA until the new YMCA was built in 1968.

Talbot Historical Society Project Rewind: Heads Downtown

Love this Talbot Historical Society Laird Wise Collection photo of Washington Street Easton, Maryland c. 1958! So many things to compare to today! Remember those awesome station wagons? SUV are nice but nothing can beat a station wagon with the back seat facing the cars behind you!! Interesting seeing the stores of the past, Atkinson’s, Rexall Drugs, Fox’s, Beneficial Loans and further down the street Fox Brothers! The signs aren’t visible street level but we know Rowens and Shannahan Wrightsons are also there!
