VINTAGE-BOSTON

Those familiar with Boston’s Downtown Crossing should be interested in this view of Washington Street as the somewhat familiar “Boston Theatre District at Night."  A useful landmark is the still extant Paramount Theatre.  If Boston had that much neon then there must have been a time when neon was more predominant in all major U.S. cities.

This image, possibly from the 1950s, appeared in "Greetings from Boston Mass.,” a souvenir mailable folder of “natural color reproductions from Kodachromes,” published by Bromley & Company, Inc. of Boston, probably in the 1960s.
