label levels:

Erving, Massachusetts, is defined by the long, high ridge rising north of the Millers Falls River, with the vast majority of the population clustered in the valley of the river. The available waterpower defined the character of the town, and from the beginning it supported grist mills and a tannery. You can see the river in the foreground of this picture. The town is rural in character, and many of the buildings seen in this picture are still a familiar site.
