Description:

Photos show views of the commercial building located at 369 Main Street on the west side of the street at the corner of Albion Street. Built around 1860 by Davis & Bryant, Builders for Samuel Kingman, the Italianate Style building is now covered with vinyl siding. Most of the original exterior decoration has been removed, although the structure's original massing can still be discerned. Kingman was a tailor, and later postmaster for the town. The building housed both his tailor shop and, for a time, the Post Office. In later years the Richardson Light Guard held meetings on the third floor. More recently, the building has been known as the Bourdon Block after the Bourdon Photography Studio which was on the ground floor. Photos taken at 8:45 a.m. on Monday, July 28, 2008.;Detailed entry in building survey, "The cultural resources of Wakefield", pD24.
