The North Country Remembered photograph in Sunday’s Times presented an interesting contrast with today’s downtown Watertown.

The photo showed holiday shoppers shoulder-to-shoulder as they crossed Public Square at the American Corner in December 1945. The crowd was described as “near peak” with long-gone businesses such as J.R. Miller, W.T. Grant and the Hotel Woodruff in the background.

Fast forward to today when the shopping center has shifted to the western edge of the city, and it’s bumper-to-bumper cars headed out Arsenal and Coffeen streets.
