Bearded Irish Clam Diggers, Boston 1882

This is a simple yet fascinating photo of probable Irish immigrants in Boston in the 1880s. Working men and women are gathered around some of the tools of their trade to be forever immortalized by a rare photographer.

  1. This is such a majestic picture. History has always intrigued me and looking at old pictures like this one fills me with nostalgia for a time when I wasn't even around. All of the people in this picture are dead, but thanks to this photograph, they shall always be alive!
