New, 6 comments


With all the talk lately of just how much the South End has changed (and is changing), we thought we'd stroll down memory lane with the help of the City of Boston's photographic archives. This reel of South End highlights covers the early 1950s through the mid-1970s, a time when the neighborhood was undergoing a sweeping wave of forced urban renewal. The "Mr. Logue" referred to in the photo above, for instance, is Edward Logue, the development administrator of the Boston Redevelopment Authority for much of the 1960s. We've captioned some of the spots in these shots. · New People, Developments Lead to 'Hyper-Inflated' South End [Curbed Boston]
