Mystery picture (Lawrence, MA)

The panorama photograph above was found among the historical photos at the Lawrence Public Library.  With it were a strip of individual children’s photographs.  The gentlemen are holding two signs, one reads: “So. Lawrence’s offering to the World War”.  The second reads: “Retail Merchants Association of So. Union Street and vicinity”.  I have never been able to locate where this picture was taken.  It is World War I so it was taken in 1917 or 1918.  I thought the young people may have bought war bonds.
