Bradford (Massachusetts)
The End of an Era
Images of America Series

by Patricia Trainor O'Malley

Copyright 1996, Arcadia Publishing
128 pages, Softcover, 9.25"x6.5"

From the back cover:
For more than 225 years, the town of Bradford, Massachusetts, led an independent life on the Merrimack River. Stately homes lined its main roads, a classic New England common graced its center, mid high on a hill stood Bradford Academy, the town's best-known institution. In November 1896, Bradford's long independence came to an end when the town's voters agreed to annexation by the city of Haverhill. Dr. Patricia Trainor O'Malley of Bradford College, in cooperation with the college, the Haverhill Public Library, and the Haverhill Historical Society, has compiled this new photographic history of Bradford in order to commemorate the centennial of that annexation.

Through the camera's eye, readers can stroll through the old town from the bridge to the Common, east along Salem Street and west to the railroad depot. They can visit Ward Hill, the once-sleepy farming community whose transformation to a planned factory village triggered the annexation. Through both formal portraits and casual snapshots, Dr. O'Malley's collection recaptures the people, the sights, and the texture of everyday life in the town from the 1870s to the 1920s. Her affection for the area and knowledge of its history are evident in this remarkable tribute to the town and the people of Bradford.
