Quabbin, Then and Now

  • Sutton Free Library 4 Uxbridge Road Sutton, MA, 01590 United States (map)

"Quabbin, Then and Now”    Dale Monette has taken DCR images from the Quabbin Reservoir archives taken in the mid 1930’s of the construction of the Quabbin Reservoir and recreated these photographs from the same location in present day settings.  Come see how the houses and scenes looked during the construction period of the Quabbin compared to what it looks like now some 80 years later. Many never seen before images from the DCR Archives are included in this program. You will also see pictures of what everyday life was like living the 4 Quabbin Valley towns that would soon be no more.
