Boston and surroundings

Item Information

Title:
Boston and surroundings
Description:
Beautifully colored with yellow delineating municipal boundaries and green designating parks and public reservations, this early 20th century street map was an essential reference aid for traveling around Boston and its suburbs. It extends from Winchester, Melrose, and Saugus in the north, to Dedham, Milton, and Quincy in the south. Interestingly, the dotted lines adjacent to East Boston anticipate one of the Boston's last and largest landfill projects - the East Boston flats which became the site of the city's airport.
