The Falls: Mid-Afternoon Sun

A brisk afternoon walk in the Falls. The warm sun heats the roads and the bricks. My coat is open and I'm not wearing a hat.

(Dzaidziu owned several buildings in South Hadley. He always had his eye on the Richmond, I'm told. )

Bob Judge, President of the South Hadley Historical Society said, "The building was built for my great-grandfather, Martin Judge (1865-1929). The family folklore is that it was named "Richmond" because his wife was born in Richmond, VA., which she was."
