Boston & Albany Railroad Company photographic collection, 1890s-ca. 1920
- Boston & Albany Railroad Company photographic collection, 1890s-ca. 1920
The Boston & Albany Railroad Photographic Collection consists of more than 2,500 original negatives and study prints. These images constitute a record of the company's construction activities, rolling stock, stations, and specialized equipment from the late 1890s until approximately 1920. While the collection is of great interest in regard to railroad history, it also holds value as a resource for architectural history. Many towns throughout Massachusetts are revealed as they were seen along the tracks. There is also extensive coverage of the rail facilities attached to the piers of the Cunard Lines in East Boston and of the building of stations in Framingham, Worcester, and Pittsfield. Other locations are also well-represented, such as Boston, Allston, and Newton. Source: Guide to the Library and Archives, 13.
