Donald W. Latham took this series of photographs that illustrate Jamaica Plain homes and businesses as they appeared in the 1970s and 1980s. Latham was a long-time Jamaica Plain resident who was raised in Hyde Square and later lived on Green and Washington Streets. Mr. Lathan worked at the Veterans Administration Hospital on South Huntington Ave. and also at Harvy's Hardware in Jamaica Plain. His sister-in-law Shirley Latham describes Donald as a warm, outgoing man who loved conversing with others. He was born April 17th, 1933 and passed away February 7, 1999. The selection of photographs shown here is part of a collection of several hundred photographs by Latham graciously donated to the Jamaica Plain Historical Society by Donald's brother, Tom Latham. Frank Norton provided production assistance. The house shown above is at 100-102 Seaverns Ave. at the corner with Everett St., Elm St. and Gordon Place..
