SV225 — Nelson Dionne Collection. Front view of the Plummer Farm School, formally known as the Plummer Farm School of Reform for Boys, showing the main building and auxiliary buildings in the background. Visible are what appears to be the reform school boys posed carrying out their duties, in this case tending to the dirt road in front of the school, while what appears to be the faculty looks on from the adjoining grass and the school's front steps.

Published by G.M Whipple & A.A. Smith, "booksellers and stationers," at 243 Essex Street, Salem, Mass., in "Views of Salem, Mass., and Vicinity," and by photographers J.W. & J.S. Moulton, at 256 Essex Street, Salem, Mass., in "American Views," c. 1873-74.
