The majority of the prints in the Oversize photograph series of the General Photographic Collection are nineteenth-century views of Boston buildings and streets, including works by Southworth and Hawes, James Wallace Black, John Adams Whipple, and A. H. Folsom, dating from the the 1860s to the mid-1880s. Black is represented by several scenes of the Boston Fire of 1872. Besides Boston, Roxbury and Brookline, Massachusetts are well represented. There are also photographs of government buildings such as the State House and group portraits such as the employees of the W. K. Lewis Brothers Pickle Factory. There are photographs of events such as the New England Methodist Centenary Convention of 1871. Many of the photographs are of streets, such as Beacon Street, that document businesses, residences, and people in the area. This series also includes panoramas and marine views. It is partially cataloged. A related collection of oversize photographs from the Codman Collection, including Boston buildings and European travel views, is located in a separate drawer of the map file housing the general oversize collection.
