Wohlbruck Collection

Images of Worcester


This collection of 180 glass plate negatives document the city of Worcester, Massachusetts, as it looked from about 1905 to 1910. Included here are views of more than thirty city churches, buildings associated with Memorial Hospital, bucolic views of nearby Lake Quinsigamond, and bustling street sceens of downtown Worcester. A handful of images document the April, 1910 visit of President William Howard Taft to the city. Many of these negatives were likely used to print photographic postcards, which Wohlbrück was producing at this time.
