50 for 50 PHOTO EXHIBIT:

Our Preservation Celebration will also feature the launching of our 50 for 50 Photo Contest. The photo exhibit (up from October 24 through November 22) will be the 50 best pictures submitted to our photo contest that show the things that make Cambridge such a great place to live and work. We’re looking for photos of the things that you could say “Cambridge wouldn’t be Cambridge without…” What do you think is a uniquely Cambridge place or institution? What makes this city your home?
