Historic Neighborhood Photo: Unity Street

Photo courtesy of Boston Public Library, Print Department

This week’s photo is of the North End’s Unity Street back in 1898. The street is located just off of the Paul Revere Mall and is still just as narrow as shown in the image! If you were to visit the area today, you’d notice that the cobblestone has been paved over and the buildings have gotten taller too.

Centuries ago, the street was part of the rim that lapsed the outskirts of the old Mill Pond. Read more of our historical coverage on Unity Street here.
