Work in Progress

Peer-reviewed Articles

Kathleen Lord. The Laissez-faire Politics of Water Main and Sewer Pipe Installation in
Saint-Henri, 1885-1905

Abstract: This article examines class and public health to explain delays in providing the essential services of water and sewage for the citizens of Saint-Henri in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Submission to Urban History Review/Revue d’histoire urbaine.

Kathleen Lord. Photographic Streetscapes and Urban Sociability, 1870-1940

Abstract: This study analyzes photographs of urban street sociability in New York City from 1870 to 1940. The social space of street photography represents a potentially significant contribution to North American historiography. Urban social historians have rarely explored the relationship between photography and street sociability using a photo-analytical, comparative, and technological approach. Artistic collections comprising urban street scenes often examine photographers under a particular theme in a specific country or studies of prominent photographers in one city. Rarely have historians focused in a single publication on the impact of amateur and professional photographic techniques and styles to reveal late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century street sociability. Submission to the Journal of Urban History.
