1915 Street Scene in Middlesex VA
It is always interesting to see photos from days gone past. The interesting street scene above was taken by Lewis Reed in Middlesex, Virginia. All of the cars in the view are late model vehicles. The Middlesex Garage, which appears to be a Ford Agency that advertises gasoline, oils and lubricants for sale, is also visible. A closer look reveals the price of gasoline as 15 cents. Also visible in the photo are trolley tracks running down the middle of the dirt road.
Below are motorcyclists posing on the street in Middlesex. Edgar Reed is shown on the left on his Excelsior motorcycle.
Middlesex County is located on the Middle Peninsula in the U.S. state of Virginia. Middlesex has remained largely rural over the years with farming, forestry, fin and shell fishing and tourism providing the principal elements of its economic base. Its geographical location has helped it to retain its rural character while also making it the perfect place to recapture childhood memories of summer days spent on a boat, catching crabs and water skiing.
