    Does anyone know where the photo of Ludlow in the 1930’s came from? My dad was born in Ludlow in 1931. I was told his uncle basically “owned” Ludlow or at least much of it by way of owing many of the buildings and businesses. I would like to figure out of any of the folks in the picture are family members and if the buildings/businesses could have belonged to my great-uncle.
