The following digitized images are made possible through a gift  given by Mr. and Mrs. Joseph  E. Rogers and Mr. William A. Hendrickson in honor of the 90th birthday of Mrs. Ruth Wilcox Hendrickson, Class of 1925.  Five hundred slides from the Fall River History Materials Project were digitized on five cd disks. Approximately  15-20 images from each disk have been placed on this server. As we acquire more space on this account, more images will be mounted at a later date.

Seventeen of the one hundred images on this photo cd disk can be viewed below in Netscape.
