‘Dirty Old Boston': Photos From The City’s Past
We stumbled across a treasure trove of old images recently: black and white photos of The Prudential tower when it was new, the old wooden tug boats that used to dock outside the Museum of Science in the Charles River, even Kenmore Square before the CITGO sign.
The source of these great old photographs was the Facebook page called Dirty Old Boston, which collects photographs from the Boston/Cambridge area before the 1980s.
