|Main Street - 1962
The overhead walkways connect the Remington Rand bldg (left)
to the Remington Arms bldg (right). Remington Rand (formerly
Remington Typewriter) became Univac. When Univac moved out
of town Remington Arms took over all the buildings.
(Note: Urban renewal in the 80's destroyed most all of this scene
except for the Remington buildings - a damn shame.)
