Boston

Item Information

Title:
Boston : 1899
Description:
By the time this aerial view was published, the filling in and development of Back Bay was nearly complete, doubling the original size of the city. The Common and Public Garden are centrally located, with the new Back Bay neighborhood to the west. The burned district has not only been rebuilt, but has expanded to include a bustling waterfront, illustrating how Boston was an important regional commercial hub. As Boston’s business district grew, public places and green spaces had to be developed on the edges of the urbanized area.
