19th Century Photos of Boston, Mass


Great Boston Fire of 1872


Quincy Market

These two photos of Quincy Market are perhaps twenty or thirty years apart. The first shows a smart, clean building. The second shows the building looking much less polished, the awnings have been replaced almost with a shanty town effect, and (telegraph?) wires now hang above the street.

Boston 1895-1910

This collection of old photos of Boston taken between 1895 and 1910 take us back to a time when Boylson Street was the preserve of street cars, horses and carts, and ladies in long skirts, and patrons of the Hotel Vendome stepped out into horse driven carriages.

Each image is carefully labelled with both the Boston location and the approximate time the old photo was taken, so you always know when and where you are.
