Lowell (pop. 105,000) is the fourth largest city in Massachusetts after Boston, Worcester, and Springfield.
It is one of the oldest industrial cities in the US and is built on a network of canals on the Merrimack River.

The only residential areas I hit were adjacent to downtown to the south and west, which tended to be on the grittier side.

Here's a few shots from early September of 2005, for a warmer look at things












Lowell is one of those cities where almost every square inch is potentially interesting. I didn't even touch any neighborhoods more than a few blocks form downtown. They seemed pretty neat driving in and out. Perhaps another day...

This concludes the Merrimack River cities trilogy:
