A Topographical History
Whitehill, Walter Muir (Book - 1968)

Item Details

THIS EDITION HAS BEEN REPLACED BY A NEWER EDITION In this urbane and delightful book, Walter Muir Whitehill follows the course of Boston's history, describing the changing face of the city and the society that changed with it, through more than three hundred years. This edition includes a chapter describing the major changes of the city since 1958, as well as new pictures. Generously illustrated, written with a knowledge of and affection for a great city that are visible on every page, this book speaks equally to those who know Boston well and those who are discovering the city for the first time.
