I stumbled across the images of Spencer Grant while exploring the Boston Public Library online archives. I am smitten with his images of everyday life, including these photographs taken at a variety of public events around Boston. Most of these images were taken between 1975-1982. However, for me, they are reminiscent of summer days spent at BBQs and picnics around San Francisco.
