Discover the history of Stoneham, Massachusetts, from its inception in 1725 to the 1990s, in this unprecedented pictorial history. Stoneham invites you back to the days when groceries and ice were home-delivered and when local transportation consisted of the railroad and the "Yellow Peril." Over 200 vintage photographs, many of them never before published, show this historically rich town as it once was. Learn about the automobile industry in early Stoneham and a Stoneham-produced car, which won a transcontinental race in 1909. See the early homes, police and fire departments, churches, businesses, and schools, including the first South School (1851–1938), as well as the second (1938–1998), which helped give the town its unique character and small-town charm. Meet some Stoneham men and women who defended liberty, and see what local folks did on the home front to contribute to the war effort.
