Recently I purchased a small collection of Stereoscopic images of Stoughton. These were taken around 1874 and were produced by a photographer named O.E. Bradford of Randolph, Mass.
These views were used with at stereopticon viewer to produce a three dimensional view to the eyes.
Take a look of the views of Stoughton 137 years ago, and see if you recognize some of the spots today.
Landmarks captured include:
- The Methodist Church in Stoughton on Pleasant Street
- The 1808 edifice of the Universalist Church on the corner of Washington and Pleasant Streets
- Morton Square in Stoughton
- Wyman Street
- Atwood's Hall and Stable
- The Nathaniel Morton Shoe Factory
