Recall the bygone days of Rhode Island's northernmost city through the vintage images presented in Woonsocket Revisited. Daily toils and joys as experienced by the residents of this industrial behemoth come to life in these photographs, which span the city's history from the onset of the Civil War through the close of the twentieth century. Highlights include many of Woonsocket's notable residents, events, and places. Striking images depict the former United States Rubber Company's Alice Mill, the Blackstone Gas and Electric Company, the destructive hurricane of 1938, and the excitement of Mardi Gras.
