Buildings and Landmarks of Old Boston: A Guide to the Colonial, Provincial, Federal, and Greek Revival Periods, 1630-1850

University Press of New England, 2001 - 177 sider
This is a book for Boston visitors interested in the architecture and character of the pre-modern era, as well as for armchair historians desiring a quick but fascinating version of the first two centuries of Boston history. Divided into four periods -- Colonial, Provincial, Federal, and Greek Revival -- the book presents 57 buildings extant in the 1960s.

For each building, in addition to a concise verbal description of its history and function, Howard S. Andros supplies a detailed drawing conveying its character and its form. Maps of downtown Boston and the greater Boston area pinpoint each site's location. The remains of a vibrant older city, increasingly hidden amid today's massive urban reconstruction projects, come alive again in The Buildings and Landmarks of Old Boston.
