Robert Campbell's eloquent and witty text sculpts an image of how Boston has changed with time. Each pair of pictures compares a site in Boston in the past and in the present. This book also explores the evolution of cities in general--how they develop and decay, build up and spread out, and revive and change. Beautiful black-and-white photography gives an insightful portrait of Boston, past and present.
