10 Photos That Show How Much Boston Has Changed… And How Much It Hasn’t

Revisit places you may know in current day Boston and see how they appeared many decades earlier. Some places are easy to identify, while others have altered so much that they’re almost beyond recognition. These 10 photos span the years and provide glimpses of the ways in which Boston has both evolved and endured over time.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
