The Perfect Holiday Gift: A Picture History of New Bedford, Volume 1 (1602-1925)


“Christmas on Acushnet Avenue (Spinner)

A Picture History of New Bedford is the first extensive city history to appear in decades. Edited by Joseph Thomas, Alfred Saulniers, Natalie White, Marsha McCabe and Jay Avila, its two volumes capture the city’s journey through hundreds of photographs and stories. The first volume spans from 1602 to 1925 and traces New Bedford’s story from native Wampanoag hunting ground, straight-laced Quaker enclave and world-class whaling powerhouse to Underground Railroad stronghold, fine textile producer and fledgling fishing port.
