The photo on the left, of Main Street looking east from Saco Street, was taken in the early 1970s. The large building on the left was Bailey Auto Supply on the first floor, with apartments on the upper floors. Stultz Auto Supply occupied the building next to it. Roger LeClerc’s Shell Station can also be seen. Yudy’s tire plant and retail store were on Main Street at the corner of Saco Street, and can be seen in the right of the photo. Stultz Auto Supply closed, and the building was occupied by Hydraulic Hose & Assembly until it recently moved to Gorham. Bailey’s Auto Supply closed, and the first-floor businesses at that location are the Hair Shoppe and Village Dry Cleaners. Roger’s Shell Station is now LeClerc’s Exxon Station. Yudy’s Tire Co. also closed, and that building is occupied by several small businesses.
