Concord (Massachusetts)
Then and Now
Then & Now Series

by Sarah Chapin, Clairborne Dawes, and Alice Moulton

Copyright 2001, Arcadia Publishing
96 pages, Softcover, 9.25"x6.75"

From the back cover:
Concord's photographic history begins in the last third of the eighteenth century and, in this new collection of "then and now" photographs, there is an abundance of the earliest images that capture the old town and its townspeople. Modern images chosen for their resemblances or comparisons illustrate the originally rural community's transformation into a modern suburb and evoke thoughts of history's ever-turning progression.

Many of the older images in Then & Now: Concord have been given to the authors especially for this publication. Many are part of the Concord Free Public Library's Special Collection. Most of the modern photographs have been made by photographers Claiborne Dawes and Alice Moulton. Their images show such compelling comparisons as fathers and sons, old houses renovated or replaced with other structures, and the famous old authors with recent famous new ones. Then & Now: Concord will bring murmurs of reminiscence to residents and expressions of interest and curiosity to visitors seeking depth to their understanding of this important New England town.

Sarah Chapin is a historian for the town of Concord and author of Images of America: Concord. Claiborne Dawes, a talented amateur photographer, is a children's author whose stories are based on actual local events. Alice Moulton is a well-known photographer in Concord whose work has been widely exhibited. Together these three women have brought fresh insight to Concord's rich history.
