About this title


In 1847, following much objection and lawlessness, the
pioneer townsfolk of Lawrence were finally recognized
in a charter signed by the governor of the Commonwealth.
Known alternately as “The Immigrant City,” “The
Friendly City,” and “The Woolen Worsted Capital of the
World,” the city of Lawrence would thereafter become
a crowded urban laboratory whose experiments were
recorded around the globe.
Issued during the sesquicentennial year of the town’s
incorporation, this sequel volume revisits in greater detail
the work and the leisure of the people of Lawrence from
the advent of photography through the 1950s. The book’s
focus on the everyday life of the common man reveals
some lesser-known occupations―such as cigar maker and
horse undertaker―as well as a heartiness and spirit unique
to this diverse population. In addition, the book records
the history of the busiest and best-known thoroughfares
ever traveled in Lawrence, and concludes with a look at
city landmarks that have been destroyed over the years.

About the Author:

Author Ken Skulski is a historian and researcher who gathered the roughly two hundred marvelous images contained in this volume from the internationally known collections of the Immigrant City Archives as well as those belonging to families―past and present―of this remarkable community. Mr Skulski’s work represents the most extensive visual record of the people and places of Lawrence, Massachusetts, that is available in book form.
