Craig has no information at all about this photo.
We're hoping one of you will recognize the house.
Craig has heard from David Tyler, a current resident of Bloomsbury, who had this to say:
"The house in the picture labeled "Street Work" appears to be the house
that is on the corner of Church & Main Streets in Bloomsbury.
This is across the street from the school and next to the church.
I live up the hill on Rt. 579 and drive by this area every day.
think they are excavating the streets to reduce the grade. If you
look at the far left in the photo the men are standing about 6 feet
higher than the guys in the center. In the area near the center
where the guy is by the rocks, there is now a second set of
steps. There is a photo at the PNC bank in Bloomsbury that shows
some work like this being done one block down the hill. It could
be from the same time. If you look at the height of the ground at
the cemetery, you can tell they cut the road down to lessen the grade."
