Yale Photographic COllection

In 1909 Reverend David Lewis Yale of the First Congregational Church took his camera and documented life in Enfield.  It is a truly unique snapshot of life in the first decade of the 20th Century.  The Friends of the Enfield Public Library worked with Fred Bird Photography to digitize the glass slides.  Reverend Yale gave slideshows with these images in the 1940s. The captions are from the original notes that he used for the presentations are included to describe the photographs.
