This book documents the construction of Boston's famed Central Artery highway back in the 1950s with text and photos. It also includes some great shots of the old North End neighborhood before being demolished to make way for the highway. A must for anyone with an interest in the history of Boston or the Big Dig--the pictures of Boston back when the original Artery was being built make the Big Dig look orderly! Commuters who take the Artery every day would also particularly enjoy this unique perspective on the highway you all know and love. I highly recommend this book--it is truly a unique document of a fascinating (and little-known) part of Boston's history.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
