Good Times & Bad: The Baldwin Photos & 1930s Natick

George E. Baldwin was employed as a freelance photographer in the 1930s, specializing in snapping pictures of notable events, crimes, and accidents for the local police departments  and newspapers.

In the 1990s, a stash of undeveloped film was discovered in the attic of a house on Plain Street.  The roll was donated to the Natick Historical Society, which developed the images to find over 200 of Mr. Baldwin’s photos showcasing views of Natick, Wellesey, Framingham, and more. The house on Plain Street had belonged to the Baldwin family in the 1930s.

Come see our newest special exhibit at the Morse Institute Library, on display in the historical exhibit case on the first floor until June of 2018. See the full collection of Baldwin photos here.
