Boston Globe, Boston, 1956

PC044.TMP.059 (RS81138)

Description

For eighty-seven years, the Boston Globe headquarters was located on "Newspaper Row," a section of Washington Street in downtown Boston, before moving to Dorchester in 1958. Until then, for many Bostonians, part of any day included catching the latest news before it was printed. Here we can see the most recent headlines scrawled in chalk for passersby to see.
