The North Reading Historical and Antiquarian Society has been combing through its collection to find pictures – some of which haven’t been seen in decades -- for its next meeting at 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 7 at the Edith O’Leary Senior Center, 157 Park St., North Reading

The society will present “Pictures From Our Collection,” which will highlight photos of people and places of North Reading’s past. A similar program was very popular last year and the society looks forward to highlight even more classic photos from North Reading’s past.

Society members will discuss many of the people and places in the photographs, but we’re also hoping that audience members help us identify people and places on photos that have long since been forgotten.

Those who attend can bring their own old photos of North Reading to show the group too.

The presentation will start shortly after a brief society business meeting at 7 p.m.
