Boston is an American city quintessentially founded upon change. From its birth to the present, Boston has consistently built and reshaped its appearance, ideals, and industry. Through changing fortunes, Boston has continued to grow and prosper by overcoming adversity and maintaining the strong, independent culture of its citizens. With a selection of fine historic images from his bestselling book Historic Photos of Boston, Timothy Orwig provides a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of Boston.

From the era of privately owned textile interests, to its role as a financial hub, Remembering Boston follows life, government, education, and events throughout the city’s history. This volume captures unique and rare scenes as depicted in more than a hundred historic photographs. Published in striking black-and-white, these images communicate historic events and everyday life of two centuries of people building a unique and prosperous city.
