Overview
With Tyngsborough, the first photographic history of the town ever published, resident author Herbert Morton presents an affectionate look at this small New England community from the birth of photography through the 1970s. In these vintage images from years gone by, a peaceful, unharried, and yet industrious way of life is revealed. Hearty settlers along Tyngsborough's section of the Merrimack River built farms and small industries next to quiet homes, parks, and places of recreation. Mr. Morton's fascinating collection of images shows many homes of the colonial era, some of which have now faded away from all but photographic record and loving memory. The commercial and recreational centers of old Tyngsborough are also illustrated vividly in this historic work, reminding one of the town's integral role in the development of Massachusetts and nearby New Hampshire.
