Resident researcher, Anne Pistorio, sorts through the old, dusty boxes at the Boston Public Library and sent us these two classic North End photos with the help of BPL’s Aaron Schmidt.
The first is a panoramic photo by Frank B. Conlon of the old North End Beach, formerly on Commercial Street. If you are good at identifying periods, leave a comment since we don’t have the year the photo was taken.
The photo below is a reminder of how the North End streets were cleaned before the mechanical sweepers. Any history buffs know the street?
Both of these photos can be found in the Historical Photo Gallery.
