Somersworth, New Hampshire, is a city which has grown in many ways since it was first designated a town in 1754. When the Great Falls Manufacturing Company was established on the banks of the Salmon Falls River in 1822, Somersworth was thrust into the Industrial Revolution. This had a tremendous economic and social impact on the area and led to Somersworth's proud identity as a hardworking and dynamic mill town. Collected in this fascinating visual history are over 200 photographs which together reflect the rich and diverse history of Somersworth and the nearby towns of Rollinsford and Berwick from the early industrial age to 1960s. In these images can be seen the roots of the purpose, pride, and community spirit which today help Somersworth adapt to the changes of the twentieth century.
