2015 PHSNE Journal
2015 PHSNE Journal

The 2015 New England Journal of Photographic History, #173, contains:

The Watergate Break-In Cameras – what the burglars really used; Way Back to School – College Dorm Room Photos (c.1900); Lost Negatives of Herbert Ponting – the gift of a collection reveals an unexpected treasure; Needles in the Haystack – searching for Civil War images from both sides for the book “Divided We Fought”; Rediscovering Three Photographers: Benjamin Crown of Brattleboro, VT; Hattie J. Goodnow, Sudbury Teacher and Photographer Reborn; Margaret Sutermeister, Chronicling Seen and Unseen Worlds (Milton, MA).

Each of these photographers documented their communities from the late 1800s into the 1900s with care, diligence, insight, and occasional humor. Each is also a celebration of the work, largely volunteer, by local historical societies to find and preserve the visual history of these communities.
