About the Author

George T. Comeau is a local historian and attorney with a keen enthusiasm for all things connected to Canton. A passion for the Canton Viaduct and Paul Revere's copper-rolling mill helped define his interests at a very early age. He is a member of the Canton Historical Commission and the Canton Historical Society and has spent much of his life working toward preserving the history of his hometown. Many of the images collected in Canton represent more than 100 years of private collections and create a unique journey through Canton's history.
