Remembering Worcester

Recently I have found myself very interested in some online groups and websites that I thought you all might like as well.

The first is on Facebook, and is a group called-
Your probably from Worcester if...  This is a great site and allows members to post their own recollection of all things Worcester.  Watch out though, it can be addictive.
Your probably from Worcester if...

The second is a historical website of vintage pictures from the turn of the century till the early 1970's.  Denholms was recently featured on the site!
The website is Shorpy Historical Photo Archives

The last is a photo gallery by the Worcester Historical Museum on Tumblr and it features mainly archival images of Worcester during its heyday.

I hope that you enjoy these as much as I do.

  1. Chris, I have been addicted to Shorpy's new section on colorized photos. Yes, they were colorized and not taken in color, but there is nothing like viewing a vintage photo in color to bring the past forward. Can't get enough! I am also addicted to my hometown's FB page. It's amazing what we remember - seemingly unimportant things at the time fuel our happiest thoughts today. Sort of what you have done for Denholm's and your grandmother's memory.
