A busy colonial port, Boston grew into the biggest and richest city of New England, a center of learning whose celebrated universities have lately made the region a hotbed for biotechnology. During the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, public spaces, mansions, and campuses appeared within a stone's throw of Boston Harbor and the Charles River. Here we give you 48 historic buildings on 48 cards, a photograph on the front and, on the back, notes about the building, its architect, and its historical setting. From the handsome eighteenth-century spire of Old North Church to Faneuil Hall and Fenway Park, the noblest and best-loved of Boston architecture is depicted in photographs by Peter Vanderwarker and described by Dave Weinstein, architectural historian and author of Pomegranate's Great Buildings of San Francisco cards.
