Can you find the hidden images from 1890?

This is a great advertising card from the 19th century. In Pittsfield, MA on North street was Nugent's store. If you were a kid growing up in that era, this would have been a true daily destination. 
 I have no idea why it would be important to know why this store is 1.5 miles from the Pittsfield Cemetery. 
I thought briefly that the phrase "Stop the Car" on the face of the card indicated that this was maybe from the 20's or 30's until I discovered that street cars were common on North Street.
