Dixwell, and they include images of houses and streets in Petersham, Mass., the Harvard Observatory in Cambridge, Mass., and interiors of 58 Garden Street in Cambridge, Mass. The interior views of 58 Garden Street show the living room, dining room, and kitchen, and exterior photographs document the house in different seasons and include gardens.
