Looking west on Freedom Street. The house on
    the right is 50 Freedom. At the time the photo
    was taken, it was the home of Charles Roper.

The caption for this picture says "South Hopedale."

    The caption for this picture says The Corners - East Hopedale. My first
    thought was the five-corner intersection of Northrop, Freedom, Williams
    and Jones, but another (probably better) possibility is somewhere near
    where Adin meets what was then called West Main Street.

    Thanks to Mike Cyr for sending them. He also sent the following about the photographer from the AAS site.

    The Photographer is Theodore Clemens Wohlbrück who worked out of a shop on Worcester’s Main Street from
    the late 1800s to 1911

    Wohlbrück was photographing various locations of Worcester County and the City of Worcester at a time when
    the city was riding high on its self-designation as the “Heart of the Commonwealth.”  The collection includes
    images of forty-one different towns in Worcester County. These images, many of which were mounted and hand
    tinted by the photographer, focus on the landscape, roads and bridges of the communities across the county,
    from small and rural Dudley in the south to large and booming Fitchburg in the north.
