Christmas, Crosby's Restaurant, 19 School Street, Boston, Mass.

Description

There is an extensive dinner menu and a "cooked to order" menu which includes temperance drinks. An essay in the opening pages gives a history of the site by Alexander Corbett, Jr., a Boston journalist and Bostonian Society member. The Cromwell's Head Tavern was located on School Street and there is a reproduction of the tavern sign, done by Paul Revere, in the essay. A "Strangers" Directory" lists historic sites. A description of greater Boston is provided on the last page. Two children bring home a Christmas tree in the cover illustration. The seal for Crosby's Restaurant is on the lower right corner.
