RUSSELL COLLECTION
 
     George Russell was an early 20th century commercial photographer based in Lowell.  He was known for large, panoramic, group photographs.  He traveled throughout New England photographing class graduations, group outings, conventions, social events, and fraternal, military, and union organizations.  In the 1990s, his estate donated to the Lowell Historical Society, those photographs with Lowell connections.
