These images depict various houses and locations in Brookline, Massachusetts, Thomas Warren Sears's hometown. Most of the sites are between St. Paul and Carleton Streets and include properties located in the Longwood and Cottage Farm historic districts. Many of the images were taken from an upstairs window or the roof of the Sears family home. Identification of individual images was facilitated by Greer Hardwicke, Preservation Planner in the Town of Brookline's Office of Planning and Community Development and by Ken Liss and Larry Barbaras of the Brookline Historical Society.
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of historic district data sheets, and photocopies of correspondence relating to the identification of the sites.
