Thomas W. Sears appears to have taken these images as part of his preparation for a landscape design assignment while he was a student at Harvard. They depict two public spaces in Framingham--the Framingham Centre Common and the Framingham South Common (now known as the Downtown Common)--as well as adjacent buildings. Lantern slide versions of several of these images, as well as additional views (including a plan by Sears)'s plans) are held by the Loeb Library, Graduate School of Design, Harvard University and are also available through the America Memory Project at the Library of Congress.
The folder includes worksheets, photocopies of historic district data sheets, and photocopies of correspondence relating to the identification of the sites.
