The Marblehead Current is proud to partner with photographer and historian Dan Dixey, who regularly shares photos of Marblehead from his extensive collection, along with information about each shot.
“This is a flood at Central and Chestnut Streets on March 1, 1914. The image is from the original Fred Kitchman glass negative,” Dixey explained. Litchman was a photographer in Marblehead in the early and mid 1900s.
“He started down on State Street, where Maddie’s is now on the second floor. Then he bought the building next to the Lee Mansion. He took fantastic photographs — a mixture of street scenes, people, groups, baseball teams, soldiers going off to war.”
