Boston Then and Now is a book of comparative photographs which document the growth of the city from 1850 to 1980. Old and new photographs of precisely the same sites are paired to show the nature and extent of the changes that have happened in Boston. Almost 60 old views were selected from among thousands of pictures of Boston in the collections of the Boston Public Library, the Bostonian Society and the Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities.
