Very Rare 1890s Album, Springfield, Ma - 190 Photos - Railroad Disaster, Etc. For Sale
You are looking at a fascinating antique photo album from the 1890s featuring 98 photos from Springfield, MA. The album is complete from beginning to end. All photos measure 4.75 by 3.75 inches. Some are a bit faded and some are crisp and bright. The subject matter is fabulous if you’re interested in this early era of US history. There are numerous photos of the Springfield Brewing Company which was located at Fort and Water streets. Very rare photos of the inside of the saloon, the bar and the delivery wagon out front of the brewery. Also wonderful photos of the male members of the local Rod & Gun club showing them, fishing, posing with beers and a keg and generally carousing and getting in trouble. Some things never change. Also numerous photos of a dramatic railroad disaster with a full derailment of what looks like a long train and pretty much the whole town out taking in the sight. There are also images of the freshly finished mausoleum of Everett Hosmer Barney. He built it in 1892 for his son and eventually him and his wife were laid to rest there also. There is a wonderful image of a man and women on a tandem bicycle riding past the Joseph B. Fontaine South Holyoke Bakery. Also photos of baseball and great shots of proprietors posing outside their grocery store. The album measure 14.5 inches by 11 inches and is in quite good condition. The binding is loosening and the covers cloth covered board covers show wear to the edges. But the album is complete and quite researchable. The only Springfield Brewing Company I could see online is in Montana but perhaps someone more familiar with the local history will solve this one. I’ve got many scans of the album below. Please feel free to email with any other questions. Thanks for looking and good luck offerding.
