Howes Brothers

The Howes Brothers Alvah, Walter, and George, traveled the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts taking photographs of the residents, documenting pictorially the customs, fashions, architecture, industry, technology, and economic conditions of rural New England at the turn of the century. Today images of their work exist in the archives at the University of Massachusetts and at the Ashfield Historical Society
