About This Book

Using stereoviews and postcards, Chelsea chronicles ninety-five years of the city's glorious past as it emerged from agrarian roots to become an important industrial center and home for thousands of European immigrants. The pages are filled with more than one hundred eighty historic views, documenting Chelsea's history from the post-Civil War era to the Vietnam decade. Highlighted are the 1867 Water Celebration, the great fire of 1908, the city's rebirth during Reconstruction, the expansion of the Naval Hospital during World War I (today's Admirals Hill), Prattville, the Soldiers Home, the post-World War I era, and much more. This volume will excite anyone who is preservation minded and enjoys local history.
