Kurt Swanson presents a Tabblo of North End images.
“I live in the North End of Boston, so I volunteered to do my best to capture what life is like here, even though, like so many other places in the world, this is a neighborhood in transition. In the 1930’s there were over 45,000 people living here, 90% of Italian heritage; today, only 50% of the 15,000 residents are. Yet the traditions, and their way of life, are ever present. I hope you can get some sense of what the people and places are like here today (2009), and it is my hope, and the hope of the Boston Photography Center, that we can continually update the neighborhood projects to document the changes going forward. Thank you.”
