Baxter Photograph Album
The Blackstone Library has an album of photographs taken in 1917 by Charles N. Baxter. Baxter was the long time librarian of the library and took these one by one and one half inch photos probably with a brownie camera. The quality of the images is only fair but provide a view of buildings during that period, many of which no longer stand. The album was probably put together in the 1970s.
All of the images are labeled, some with the addresses from 1917. Many street numbers changed in 1956 so it is difficult to correlate the previous addresses with the current ones. A notation has been made giving current addresses if the building now exists.
