This exhibit commemorates the 100 year annivarsary of the Great Salem Fire, June 25, 1914, and features historic photographs taken during the fire and days following.
The images featured are from two notable collections of Salem fire artifacts owned by Thomas Brophy Sr., A career Salem Firefighter, and by Nelson Dionne, a keeper of Salem history and author.
This exhibition was produced by James Bostick with assistance from Ellen Hardy of Hardy House Press. Images on display may be purchased for $150 each with a portion of the proceeds donated to a local fire charity.
A special reception and discussion will be hosted on Sunday June 22 from 5-8 pm.
