Scrapbook 12: Beacon Hill newspaper clippings

MS004.012 (RS272629)

Description

This scrapbook consists of newspaper and magazine clippings about Beacon Hill dating from the late 1920s to the 1930s. There are numerous clippings about Beacon Hill gardens and several magazine articles about Beacon Hill interiors. It also contains a few postcards of Beacon Hill. The scrapbook belonged to John Codman IX (1898-1989) and may have been compiled by him and/or his father, William Coombs Codman (1860-1938), both of whom were members of the firm Wm. C. Codman and Son, Realtors and Insurance Brokers. Several of the clippings refer to the Codman firm.
