Check out this old photo of Rowes Wharf from 1960! The building shown above was torn down by the Boston Redevelopment Authority not long after this photo was taken, and was rebuilt into the iconic Rowes Wharf we know today. See the photo of the remodel in 1988 shown below. The similarities between the two structures are striking!
