Canton is a town like so many New England towns. Its rich history extends back to Canton's early connections with the founding fathers. An expansive industrial center was made possible by superb water rights and one of the first railroads in the nation. Canton's history is enriched by its strong associations with patriots, industrialists, great thinkers, and doers. Within Canton are postcards and photographs that capture the spirit of enterprise and pride in the community.

George T. Comeau is a local historian and attorney with a keen enthusiasm for all things connected to Canton. A passion for the Canton Viaduct and Paul Revere's copper-rolling mill helped define his interests at a very early age. He is a member of the Canton Historical Commission and the Canton Historical Society and has spent much of his life working toward preserving the history of his hometown. Many of the images collected in Canton represent more than 100 years of private collections and create a unique journey through Canton's history.
