1950's Mystery Rooftop View

New Bedford, Ma.

Thanks to Jay Simmons, the mystery is solved about from where it was taken, (The Times Building).
What are the other buildings that are in that photo?
This was taken prior to the urban renewal and before Rt. 18 and the Octopus were built.

The Crystal Ice company can be seen, and Anderson Little was just to the left near the foot of the bridge. Behind that Roland Chartier had a welding shop, known as "Ronnie's Welding".

The storage facility was well known.
Thanks to Jay Simmons for unravelling the mystery about from where it was taken.
