Does this story sound familiar? You’ve decided to do some work to your house and as you’re pulling up the floor boards, you find something dusty and old – a book or an old newspaper from a century ago, or maybe an old deed to your house. Maybe you’ve come across a dusty old box filled with pictures. You have no idea who’s pictured in the photos or who they belong to – but they look very old.
Stop by the library and see the 19th Century Family photo album and alcohol stills discovered in a Prospect Street home during renovation. If you’ve found something historic in your Cambridge home, our archivist can help you determine what it is. Please visit the Cambridge Room on the second floor for more information.
Exhibition Location: 2nd Floor of the Main Library and the Sakey Room on the first floor of the original Library building.
