Overview


From Plymouth Rock to Quincy granite, the South Shore of Boston has been a place of revolution, relaxation and revelation. Artists have gained inspiration from the meeting of sea and shore, enemy navies have targeted its strategic ports and, in better days, merrymakers have sought its warming sun, cooling breezes, amusement parks and historic and natural landmarks. The Toll House Cookie, the song When the Red, Red Robin (Comes Bob, Bob, Bobbin' Along)" and the U.S. Navy's rallying cry "Don't give up the ship " all were South Shore born. John Galluzzo, author of "The North River: Scenic Waterway of the South Shore" and "When Hull Freezes Over," gathers the best of his "Look Back" column in this compilation of historic vignettes from "South Shore Living" magazine."
