Title

View north on North Pleasant Street in Amherst

Subject

Amherst (Mass.)

Description

Stately elms without foliage line the dirt street. There are houses on the left and a horse and wagon parked in front of the shop of Lee and Phillips. Frederick H. Hitchcock writes, in The Handbook of Amherst, "That portion of Pleasant Street which extends northward from the hotel is most aptly named. For the distance of a quarter of a mile, great, straight-trunked elms line each side of the road, almost uniting their branches overhead, and sheltering in the warm summer time many a tuneful katydid."
