Broadway - South Side - from Front Street

This view is to the southeast. From right to left, the buildings are Milton Realty, the Cadwallader block, Swartz Marble Works, and the Broadway House Hotel. The Milton Realty and Cadwallader Block were built and owned by my great-grandfather, Albert Cadwallader. The Milton Realty building was completed in 1910, and Albert died in 1912.

Broadway - 1906

Here is what the same corner looked like before the construction of the Milton Realty building. The store on the corner was built in 1882 by Brownell & Galbraith, on land leased from Albert Cadwallader. When Mr. Cadwallader increased the monthly rent from $25 to $35, Galbraith moved the entire building, including its contents on March 22, 1909. The store was open for business while it was being pulled down Broadway by a team of horses. It is now a news stand, and is located where the canal crossed Broadway.
