Thanks to a generous resident, the Star-Review will be printing historic photos of the village of North Syracuse for the next several weeks. The photos come from the private collection of Hubert C. Fay. The photos were provided to the Star-Review by Fay’s grandson, Dick Jeffers. Pictured here is the parade at the intersection of Main and Church streets with Officer Sicman directing traffic. The building to the right of Mellone’s was the post office. Do you know anything about this photo? If you do, email the editor at email@example.com by 5 p.m. Friday.
