Notes:
Thomas W. Sears appears to have taken these images as part of his preparation for a landscape design commission while he was practicing in Providence, Rhode Island, early in his career. They are of the area of Gloucester situated along the shore, including what is now Stacy Boulevard. Two other series in the Archives of American Gardens relate to Gloucester. Series MA117 is a single photograph of a perspective drawing titled "Proposed Treatment of Waterfront, Gloucester, Massachusetts," which depicts the same area as the photographs in MA408. Another series, MA116, includes two photographs of perspective drawings for another Gloucester project, a proposed "Proposed Meadowbrook Park" at the Hawthorne Inn.
Summary:
The folder includes worksheets and photocopies of labels from the box in which Sears stored the negatives.
