Boston Public Library
Old Boston Photograph Collection
The Old Boston Collection, a series of late 19th century photographs of historic Boston sites, was rediscovered by the Boston Public Library in 2007. Although the origin and early history of the collection remain a bit of a mystery, we believe that the prints represent the work of photographers affiliated with the Boston Camera Club (B.C.C.) and that the photographic project was done under the auspices of the B.C.C.
