A Photographic History of Cambridge
Cambridge, Massachusetts possesses a range of photographic documentation that is probably unparalleled for a city of its size. In 1980, The Photo Search Project, a community-sponsored effort led by the Cambridge Historical Commission, unearthed thousands of photographs in archives, attics, and family albums. The 85 selected for this book bring to life the city's rich ethnic, occupational, and architectural heritage. Dating from the 1840s to 1946, they provide not only an invaluable record of Cambridge's history but a review of a century of developments in popular photography as well.
All of the photographs are captioned. An Introduction by Charles Sullivan discusses the development of photography in the city. The chapter on George K. Warren, Cambridge's foremost photographer in the late 19th century, and the index of Cambridge photographs will be especially useful to researchers and historians.
