George R. Bosworth Photographs


George R. Bosworth was an amateur photographer in Central Vermont during the 1890s through 1910s. In 1964 his son, Millard, presented 75 prints from his father’s negatives to the VHS. This collection of 75 black and white photographs contains some iconic images of central Vermont, including images of newsboys on Barre’s Main Street, a hayfield in Berlin, and the rooftops of Montpelier. Recently, the Vermont Historical Society was the recipient of a collection of over 850 glass plate negatives created by Bosworth. We will be scanning those plates as time allows, but until that is accomplished, here is a sampling from the prints that were made in the 1960s.
