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 18th and 19th 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 spire of Old North Church to Faneuil Hall and Fenway Park, the noblest and best-loved of Boston architecture is celebrated in this entertaining and informative deck.
