Librarians at the Cambridge Public Library Delivery Desk beneath the famous Rindge Ccommandments, circa 1920.
In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the founding of the Cambridge Historical Commission, the Cambridge Historical Society is hosting a photo contest. Here’s what the contest is all about:
“We want to know what you think makes Cambridge, Cambridge. We are hosting a photo contest titled “50 for 50.” The fifty winners will be exhibited at our Celebration of Preservation event on November 13, 2013 and their work will hang in a month-long exhibit in the Multicultural Arts Center in East Cambridge.
We are looking for images of what makes Cambridge a special place––a picture of a building, a park, a sculpture, a store, or a street that captures a part of why you love our city. In essence, we want you to use a picture to complete the sentence ‘‘Cambridge wouldn’t be Cambridge without …’’ The First Parish Church, the First Baptist Church, Live Poultry Fresh Killed––you tell us why Cambridge is the place you want to be.”
The Cambridge Room’s entry is above – it’s one of our favorite photographs of the library. Our caption is “Cambridge wouldn’t be Cambridge without the library!”
