Foxborough (Massachusetts)
Images of America Series

by Jack Authelet

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

From the back cover:
This delightful new photographic history of Foxborough presents an affectionate and lively tribute to the town in its heyday. Well-known local historian Jack Authelet has pored through the archives of the Foxborough Historical Commission to select over two hundred vintage images of the town and its people. Combined with an informative text, these outstanding pictures present a revealing social commentary on life in Foxborough from the mid-nineteenth century to the town's sesquicentennial celebration in 1928.

Foxborough came of age during the industrial era and this fascinating period is expertly documented here. With photographs of the straw hat factories that made Foxborough famous, as well as images of the people who allowed them to prosper, Mr. Authelet takes his readers on an exciting journey through Foxborough's rich heritage. Readers will gain a tremendous insight into the evolution of Foxborough as a community and also learn of high and low points in the town's development, from monumental civic improvements to the devastating destruction of lives and jobs in natural disasters.

Jack Authelet is a historian and journalist whose articles have appeared for many years in the Foxboro Reporter. In Foxborough, Mr. Authelet combines his talents as both author and dedicated researcher to produce a powerful and illuminating photographic history of the town of his birth.
