Historical Photographs Online

   Friday, May 4th, 2007 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Photo from the Royal Shawcross setStarting in February 2007, the Chelmsford Library has benefited from the work of the Chelmsford Historical Society and Chelmsford Telemedia in digitizing historical photographs held in the library's archive.

These photographs are part of the Royal Shawcross photograph collection. This collection includes over 150 photographs taken in the North Chelmsford, Massachusetts area around 1901. The subjects include residences and businesses of the area, including the fire ruins of a major mill.

As they are prepared, these photographs are being uploaded to the Royal Shawcross Photographs set of the Library's Flickr account (read about Flickr), to make them available to the public.
