From The Telegraph Files

By Staff | Feb 20, 2021

From The Telegraph files While most photos of Nashua's former National Guard Armory at Canal and Lowell streets show the building engulfed in flames, this one obviously pre-dates the February 1957 fire that ended up destroying the building and prompting military officials to build the current armory on South Main Street. Given that the car parked in front is a late 1930s model, the photo was probably taken either just before, during, or just after World War II. Visible at far left is a small segment of the Unitarian Universalist Church, whose leadership, following the fire, acquired the land and built the White Wing Preschool and Kindergarten, which opened in 1959.
