About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Church in background

That church in the background on the right is still there too, bad sadly it is in a pretty bad state. They were doing construction on it for a while. The dirt around the foundation was all dug away and the door was boarded up. But it has been in various states of construction and disuse for what seems like 10 years now so I'm not sure what the goal with it is. It's a shame because it is a beautiful building.

Northampton High: 1906

I live in Northampton, and I walk past this building at least five times a week. The corner building now houses offices, including the Northampton Center for the Arts which sponsors concerts in the old school auditorium upstairs. The building to the left to which it connects now houses very nice apartments. The buildings are just a short walk from Smith College.
