Arlington: Twentieth Century Reflections (MA) (Images of America)
Arlington: Twentieth-Century Reflections celebrates the new millennium with a unique reflection of the last one hundred years in this dynamic town. As the century opens, the prizes awarded to local farm products are still making frequent newspaper headlines. But by 1910, Arlington has already reached major crossroads and with astonishing speed, starts down the path towards its ultimate destiny as a residential suburb. Over two hundred evocative images have been selected to show the evolution of Arlington from 1900 through the late 1990s. Through these photographs we witness boom times and wartimes,
celebrations and struggles, the vanished past and the past preserved. Most of these photographs have not been seen for decades, and many have been acquired from previously untapped sources.
