Description

The inscription inside the cover of this album reads "Photos taken by S.E. Morison in 1898." These snapshots include images of family members and their residences interspersed with Boston street scenes, the Public Garden and the Beacon Hill neighborhood. One photograph shows a glimpse of an early trolley, others show "horse traffic" and another depicts "1st Subway Stations" (presumably at Park Street), suggesting that the various modes of transportation were in transition at this time.
