Today’s featured images were taken on Valley Street in Lawrence, Massachusetts in 1958 to document structures in the city before urban renewal began there in the late-1950s following the decline of the textile industry. The City is located in the northeastern section of the State on the Merrimack River that was utilized for its water power to run a number of large woolen mills constructed there in the 1850s.
