NEWF Friday 1/22/13: WWII Postcard View, Jenny the Juggler, Weather Map

Neighborhood View of the Day:

This World War II era postcard shows Boston’s waterfront, scanned and submitted by Bob Skole. The text on the back says “Boston is one of the largest seaports on the Atlantic Coast. It is one day nearer to Europe than any other port. Most of the transatlantic steamers touch Boston before entering New York. The waterfront district still retains some of its picturesque aspects of early days.”

Question: Is that T-wharf at the right, next to Commercial Wharf? Leave a comment if you know.

  1. Yep, that’s T Wharf but it looks a lot prettier in that postcard than I’ve seen it in old photos.
