The Ferris building as it appeared at the corner of Main and Oak Streets in 1918. According to Susan Barlow of the Manchester Historical Society this building was rotated 90 degrees and made to face Oak Street in 1920 to make room for Watkins Brothers' furniture store. Thanks to John Knoll (1887-1955) famous for his Manchester photography we have this wonderful record of Manchester's past.
