From the 1860s through the 1880s, local photographer Henry Bailey captured all aspects of Victorian life after the Civil War in Maine s capital city. Bailey s rare stereoscopic images depict downtown Water Street, the industrial north end, Capitol Park, the Togus veterans home, and numerous public buildings, churches, and residences. Through these historic images, Victorian Augusta presents a view of the world through one man s lens. Most of the vintage photographs in this volume have come from the collection of the Maine Historic Preservation Commission, which has acquired many Bailey stereographs once owned by the photographer and his family."
