What do you think makes Cambridge Cambridge?

Last summer, we invited photographers to use an image to complete the phrase ''Cambridge wouldn't be Cambridge without ...'' in conjunction with our November Preservation Celebration.

This event marked the 50th anniversary of the first meeting of the Cambridge Historical Commission, so we chose 50 photos from all of the submissions for this traveling exhibit.

These images represent a slice of what makes Cambridge a special place. The show has been exhibited at the Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center, the Cambridge Hospital, the Gutman Library at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and the 1369 Coffee House.

A final exhibition of the complete show will be hung at the Cambridge Homes in July. 

A selection of prints are available for purchase:
