Exhibition Keepsake Book – Available Now

“A Day in the Life of Larchmont” is now available to own in a beautiful, color, hardbound keepsake book.

On October 20, 2011, over 50 photographers, some professional and most gifted amateurs,  captured hundreds of images of a single Autumn day in Larchmont.  Many of the images, which beautifully captured the flavor of life here on an ordinary day, were selected and the photographs have been exhibited over the past year in different venues. The keepsake book, designed by Rosemary Mancino, a Larchmont photographer herself (, is an edited selection from the exhibit.

To purchase a book for $40.00 , please contact Lynne Crowley, the Larchmont Historical Society’s archivist, at 381-2239 or email at  All proceeds  benefit the Larchmont Historical Society.

In addition, the book is for sale at Bradley’s Cafe, 2 Chatsworth Ave,  Larchmont Art & Custom Framing, 1899 Palmer Ave., and now at Anderson’s Book Shop, 96 Chatsworth Ave.

The Day in the Life of Larchmont book is also available for purchase online:
