In this delightful new photographic history, Concord, Massachusetts, is brought to life through extraordinary images and lively text. Readers are led through an exploration of the town's history, beginning in 1850, when the community's business and political life was concentrated along the Milldam from Monument Square to the Old Burying Ground. The Concord Free Public Library's special collections department made its repository of glass-plate images and photographs available for this historical view of Concord. Portraits of famous legislators and authors—such as Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson—vistas from rivers and hills, and a rare stereoscopic print of the 1875 centennial celebration are all included in these wonderful pages.
