We have recently acquired a number of large format images (most on 5x7 inch glass negatives) that show amazing detail of various Jamaica Plain locations including Agassiz Park, Belmore Terrace, Barbara Street, Green Street, Everett Street, Pond Street, Myrtle Street, and the 1929 and 1930 class of Jamaica Plain High School.  See the collection of those images and others here.
