Album 1, Book 6: Massachsuetts Historic Homes and Landmarks
- Album 1, Book 6: Massachsuetts Historic Homes and Landmarks
One of eight scrapbooks of 2.5 x 3.5 inch photographic prints, postcards, and original artwork document historic homes and landmarks in Massachusetts. The scrapbooks are undated, but they were probably created in the 1920s. The quality of the photographs is excellent, despite their small format. Of particular value is the abundance of well-annotated descriptions of the individual buildings, their dates of construction, their occupants, and their dates of demolition if known. The compiler is unknown. It is possible that some photographs date to several years prior to the actual preparation of these albums. Book 6 documents Dedham, Barnstable, Belchertown, Brimfield, Deerfield, Harvard, Hingham, Hyannisport, Kingston, Lancaster, Orange, Pembroke, Petersham, Plymouth, Quincy, Princeton, Amesbury, Townsend, South Wellfleet, Wayland, Milton, and Yarmouth, Massachusetts, as well as Acton, Berwick, Kittery, Monmouth, and York, Maine; Francestown, Portsmouth, Stratham, Hampton, New Ipswich, and Sharon, New Hampshire; North Stonington and Brooklyn, Connecticut; Providence, Rhode Island; Rochester, New York; and Frederick, Maryland.
