Lowell in the early 1980s

Before there was Instagram, there were actual film cameras and photos left to age for decades. As Lowell National Historical Park looks at its 35th birthday, this set of snapshots donated to the Historical Society anonymously is a great insight to a city in flux 30 years ago:

  1. Hello, I worked for the Ashes and Waste Department, DPW, in the 70s and 80s. I was wondering if you have a photo of the department at work, maybe in the blizzard of ’78? That would be two guys on the back of an orange garbage truck, or the driver driving one. If you do, could you please send it to me? Thanks-J.R.
