Description

This extraordinary collection of photographs, dating between 1899 and 1901, documents the daily life of Boston, circa 1900. Each picture is a time capsule unto itself. It's fascinating to see how far we've come and how much things have changed in a scant 100 years. From horse-drawn carriages to advertisements for "Ice Men Shoes" and 10-cent cigars, every picture deserves to be examined carefully, for each brims with remarkable details.
