I’m Nick Bunker –  writer, historian, and biographer –  and thank you for visiting.

During the research for my books I take hundreds of photographs. A few of them appear as illustrations in the finished product, but mostly they’re intended to help me to visualise the locations about which I’m writing.

On this site, I’ll be sharing some of  the images I collected while working on my new book Young Benjamin Franklin: The Birth of  Ingenuity, to be published in New York by Alfred A. Knopf in September 2018. I hope you’ll find them enjoyable, informative, and even thought-provoking.

I’ll be adding new images every week, so please come back regularly for the new material.

For your convenience, I’ve divided the images into groups: pictures from England, Pennsylvania, Boston, and so on. Just click on the relevant heading in the menu, and when you get to the page please scroll down. And if you have any questions, please be in touch by emailing me at:   nickbunker@youngbenjaminfranklin.com

As for the book, here it is:
