Overview

Some of Boston's greatest historical landmarks sit side-by-side with icons of modern American life. Discover America's oldest major city, its legendary locations, colorful neighborhoods, and thriving history in the compact edition of Boston Then and Now. "One if by land, two if by sea!" Compare then-and-now photographs of The Old North Church, where two lanterns were seen blazing from its steeple on April 18, 1775, signaling the start of the American Revolution. Planning a tea party? Make arrangements at the Old South Meeting House—this stately old building gained notoriety as the planning venue for the Boston Tea Party of 1773. Today, it's flanked by architecture spanning three centuries and is still an important gathering place for Bostonians. There's more to Boston than American history, though Fenway Park—home of the Red Sox—is a historic monument unto itself. See America's oldest operating baseball stadium back in its heyday, and how Boston's beloved park looks today.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

This inexpensive compact edition repackages Patrick L. Kennedy's 144-page "then and now" showcase of one of America's greatest cities. The 2009 larger-format version of Boston Then and Now was popular; we expect that this convenient-sized carry-around tour guide will be even more successful.
