South Country Road at Valentine's Corner

.. Br06A.1-S. Looking easterly toward the triangular park formed by the intersection of South Country and Fire Place Neck. roads, now known as Memorial Park. The view is from the "Post Office," which was a small addition attached to the Valentine's "Brook Store." The house in the background to the right is the Valentine House (Br30B). Just visible in the background to the left is the Ketcham House (Br06A) and their farm barn, now converted to a private residence.

The date of the picture is likely between 1916 and 1920. While the post card is postmarked Aug 22, 1922, the WWI memorial cannon, which was erected in the park in 1920, is not visible. The Valentine house, visible in the distance, was move about 1916. Therefore the scene seen on this post card must have been photographed between 1916 and 1920.
