Littleton, New Hampshire, is listed number eleven in Norman Crampton's One Hundred Best Small Towns in America, and it does indeed have a great deal to offer. Situated between two major rivers in the heart of the White Mountains, it was incorporated in 1784 but it wasn't until the nineteenth century that the incredibly striking natural beauty of the surrounding area was discovered by the outside world. With the development of photography in the mid-nineteenth century the grandeur of Littleton's mountain scenery soon began to attract photographers to the area, and their images of the mirror-like lakes, winding rivers, dense, dark forests, and craggy mountains began a tourist boom that continues to this day.

Littleton's extraordinary contribution to the world of photography means that the history of the town is preserved in a wealth of fascinating material. Arthur March has selected from the five thousand photographs in the Littleton Area Historical Society collection to create this tributeā€”a tribute to the people who have made Littleton the proud and prosperous community that it is today, and to the photographers who have frozen time with their lenses so that we might better understand our past.
