Item Information

Title:
[Subscription list for] Centennial View of Dedham
Description:
In a small notebook labeled Dedham, Whitefield maintained the subscription list for his birds eye view of the central village. In his introductory comments, he stated his intention of publishing a centennial view of Dedham as it appeared in 1876. He indicated that it would be compiled from original drawings that he recorded. He also proposed that the published view would measure from 20 to 35 inches, reaching the latter dimension only if he was able to obtain 200 subscriptions at $5.00 per copy. Apparently, Whitefield did not meet his goal since only about 100 subscribers agreed to purchase the view and the lithographic view measures 28 inches in length.
