Overview


With Roslindale, Boston historian Anthony Mitchell Sammarco chronicles the development and evolution of this historic Boston neighborhood in over two hundred black-and-white images coupled with detailed and informative photograph captions. Originally known as "South Street Crossing," Roslindale was once a part of Roxbury and later the Town of West Roxbury. The neighborhood was named "Roslin" by one of its early citizens after a fondly remembered Scottish town whose rolling hills evoked comparison with those of this

area. In this volume, both gradual and radical changes in Roslindale's landscape and architecture are documented in images culled from the archives of the Roslindale

Branch of the Boston Public Library as well as numerous private collections.
