In this, the first-ever photographic history of Peabody, authors Stephen J. Schier and Kenneth C. Turino document vividly the long and illustrious history of the nineteenth-centurys Leather City. Once the largest producer of leather in the world, Peabody is a proud city with a rich photographic legacy. Over two hundred vintage images of Peabodys past appear in this volume, representing the period from the 1870s through the 1960s. The people, places, and institutions of Peabody are illustrated in photographs gathered from both public and private sources, including the vast and outstanding holdings of the Peabody Historical Society.
