Aperture on Amesbury

A walking tour of industrial Amesbury for photographers.




 

On Saturday, May 20, the Amesbury Carriage Museum will offer a walking tour for photographers and others interested in the history of Amesbury’s carriage-making industry. The “Aperture on Amesbury” tour will explore sites on Carriage Hill and along Elm Street once part of this important industry.

The tour is open to photographers at all levels, and the public is invited. Pre-registration is required and there is a fee of $20 for members and $25 for non-members. Local photographer Tim Gurczak will lead the tour.

In the late 19th century, Amesbury workers and factory owners built a national reputation for making high quality carriages and sleighs.   Tour participants will have an opportunity to explore the exterior of several of the remaining factory buildings that were part of this industry. Background information about these companies and the remaining buildings will be provided

The tour will start at 9 am on Saturday, May 20.  Participants will meet in the lower millyard at 29 Water St.   The tour size is limited – be sure to register soon. Registration is available on museum website at  www.amesburycarriagemuseum.com.
