1910 - Town Square in Rockingham
This photo was taken sometime between 1908 and 1913.
Apparently the photo was made as members of an auto club
from Columbia, SC were driving through the square. Note that
the city water tower, built in 1908 and still standing in 1984,
is visible in the background. A final point of interest, to those
who recall the bittter opposition to the proposal in the 1970s
to "re-landscape" the square, with the removal of the two
large oak trees. In the old photo, the trees aren't nearly as
large - but what ever happened to the third tree?
