Paul W. Savage, Aerial photographs of Worcester and Worcester County, 1927.
This bound set of 75 photographic prints claims to be the results of the first time a newspaper made an aerial survey. In the summer and fall of 1927, the Worcester Evening Gazette sent photographer Paul W. Savage up in a small airplane to take aerial photographs of the city and surrounding towns. Views of Worcester include the fairgrounds, Lake Quinsigamond, downtown, Greendale, factories, parks, Worcester State Hospital, Clark University, Assumption College and College of the Holy Cross. Some of the images were later published in the newspaper.
