Through the vintage postcards in Boston, readers will tour the city's Emerald Necklace and green spaces, visit Boston's old waterfront, understand Boston's part in America's Revolutionary War, and see the diversity of the city's many museums, churches, libraries, colleges, and internationally famous hospitals.
