The Lowell Sun Photography Collection is one of a number of archival collections owned by the Lowell Historical Society and made available to the public through a cooperative agreement with UMass Lowell Libraries. The collection is being processed and digitized to provide greater access. Most of the photographs date from the late 1970's to the early 1990's and were captured by Staff photographers working in the greater Lowell area. Cities and towns to be found in the collection are based, for the most part, on the Sun's circulation and include Acton, Billerica, Boxboro, Dracut, Groton, Hudson and Nashua, New Hampshire. The photographs cover a wide variety of topics including politicians, Lowell's revitalization, local crimes, public events, community organizations, parks, local sports, etc. The collection also holds a number of images of public figures.
