Images of America – Larchmont
Author Judith Doolin Spikes compiled Larchmont as a tribute to her community. For this rich history, she combined more than two hundred vintage photographs with informative narrative. In it, she traces the evolution of Larchmont from Siwanoy fishing camp to incorporation as a mile-square village in 1891 to a commuter (first railroad, then automobile) suburb. She also includes the surrounding six-square-mile suburban area that shares the Larchmont postal address. Larchmont Village historian since 1980, she is the founding president of the Larchmont Historical Society and is a former teacher and journalist. She earned her doctorate from the University of Chicago.
