In 2006 the Lawrence Public Library Special Collections collaborated with NMRLS (Northeast Massachusetts Regional Library System) to scan and post images from the Library’s collection.  Topics chosen were streetscape images from downtown Lawrence in the 1923/24 period, Fr. O’Reilly Golden Jubilee Parade, NRA Parade, 1942 Independence Day Parade, the 1962 God & Country Parade, the Spanish American War, and two handbills from the Bread and Roses Strike of 1912.

NMRLS was absorbed into the state library system and all those images are now accessible at the Digital Commonwealth.
