As we prepare to celebrate Lilac Sunday at the Arnold Arboretum on May 11, 2014, we are happy to feature classic and contemporary images of our Lilac Collection in full spring splendor.

Thomas E. Marr was a professional, in-demand photographer working throughout Boston at the turn of the twentieth century. Additional views of our Lilac Collection are available in our exhibit, The Arboretum Through Time: Historic Views of Our Landscape.
