The City of Boston Archives posted these seasonal throwback photos of the 1974 North End Christmas Parade, originally taken by one of Mayor White’s staff photographers. Robert “Ted” Tomasone was still organizing things back then and of course, Santa arrived by helicopter.

See photos from this year’s 45th North End Christmas Parade.

  1. Thanks for the nice photos Matt. I love black and white photos. I especially liked the picture of Charter St. The shed in Copps Hill Terrace is gone now. Love the old cars back then.
