Overview

Boston: A Photographic Portrait by Tom Croke, Sara Day

The City of Boston is the cornerstone of American history. Since its beginnings in 1630, this vibrant and historically significant place has evolved as a leader in education, finance, medicine, and culture. Boston is a city of great thinkers, great artists, great writers, and great visionaries—a reputation that started with its founding and continues today. The diversity of the city can be found in its neighborhoods. From the North End to South Boston, each community brings with it its own unique cuisine, culture, and traditions, meshing Boston into one of the most interesting places on earth. Add to that, an unquenchable sports fan base, and it's easy to see why this is such a desirable place to live and to work. With his keen eye and deep fondness for the city, Tom Croke introduces visitors to the Public Garden, Old South Meeting House, Park Street Church, Public Common, Paul Revere's House, Faneuil Hall, and the Old North Church as well as many other attractions that you'll find in this handsome keepsake of Boston.
