Views Around Stoughton in 1874

Before 3D television and movies, the way Stoughton residents got this effect was via stereoscopic cards. Take a look of the views of Stoughton in 1874, and see if you recognize some of the spots today.

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
