Explore Vintage Asheville Nc, Downtown Asheville and more!

This is somewhere in downtown Asheville, probably near where the 4-story Sawyer Motor Company building stands now. If I can figure out where exactly, I'll update this post.

Biltmore Estate | May 8, 1894, about 1.5 years before the Christmas 1895 completion date requested by George Vanderbilt. Visible in the center is the blacksmith shop, with its tall smokestack. Directly behind the shop is a construction office, to its right is the masonry workshop of James Sinclair and Company. Derricks for lifting heavy material were scattered across the job site.

Now Wick & Greene Jewelers downtown. The Grove Arcade is in the background. Shared by Ewart Ball III on Asheville, the Way It WAS" Facebook page.
