Lowell Atlases online

by @ 10:19 am. Filed under History

Congratulations to the Lowell National Historical Park and the UMass Lowell’s Center for Lowell History for making three excellent historical atlases of Lowell available online. These are full color atlases that contain an incredible level of detail including the footprint of buildings on various lots, the name of the building owner, the square footage of the lot and the building symbols are color coded by usage. Atlas No. 1 is from 1896; Atlas No. 2 is from 1924; and Atlas No. 3 is from 1879. I’ve always hoped to incorporate these atlases into our map-based system for organizing historic records, so it’s wonderful to learn that someone’s successfully converted them to digital images. Thanks for that very valuable accomplishment.
