Abstract:

This collection, created to honor the centennial of the Great Salem (Mass.) Fire of June 25, 1914, displays 150 images that depict the burned district before the fire; the conflagration and how it spread; fire-fighting efforts and images of the Salem Fire Department and its equipment; the ruins and destruction caused by the fire; the plight of the homeless and relief efforts to assist them; and the reconstruction and redevelopment of the city. Improvements in technology provided opportunities to extract details from images that were not readily seen at the time the images were created; the collection includes several detail images. Captions identifying street names use the names current at the time of the fire. All images include a negative number. When possible, the name of the photographer has been identified.
