The Tanner Street corridor is a great opportunity for Lowell to do some very interesting work; hope to see you there!


  1. Good Morning: I am researching Lowell for my family history and stumbled upon your blogspot, to my joy! Your pictures contain the raw footage that a genealogist can celebrate. They contain images so pure that I can imagine standing there with a camera. I wondered if you could help me with a location...Abbott Boarding House on Central Avenue in Lowell. My ggrandmother, Ellen Ryan Conway immigrated from Ireland in 1875 and on the 1880 census she was boarding at the Hermon Abbott boarding house while working at the Cotton Mill. The census gives Central Avenue as the location. Thank you for your crisp images of Lowell. Pam

  2. Thanks for visiting! Do you have a more precise address? There is a Central St, but I'm not familiar with a Central Ave... Here is a map from the time period you're talking about but unfortunately, there seems to be no good index...

  3. Economic development plans can be a solution to unemployment.
