Picturesque Franklin was the second of a series of "Picturesque" books published by the firm of Wade, Warner and Company; it was published in 1891. The photographer was Clifton Johnson (1865-1940), who would go on to a rich career as a writer and illustrator. The book was the first title of a series of illustrated books in the same format about the counties of western and central Massachusetts. The text was written to highlight the things interesting to readers of the time such as descriptions of leading industries. The book profiles local towns, and provides histories. The book also includes many photographs.
