View of Boston Highlands, Suffolk County, M.A., 1888 / drawn & published by O. H. Bailey & Co.

This bird’s-eye view print of Boston Highlands, Wards 19, 20, 21 and 22, was drawn and published by O. H. Bailey & Co. in 1888. Boston was one of America’s largest trading and industrial centers in the late 1800's. An influx of immigrants from Europe and elsewhere prompted Boston to begin a campaign of enlargement. In the years before manufacturing interests moved westward, Boston waterways and mud-flats were filled in, hills leveled and islands connected, in the effort to accommodate future growth. Neighboring Roxbury township was annexed by Boston in 1868 and Dorchester became attached in 1870. Roslindale was annexed in 1873 and Brighton and Charlestown became part of the city in 1874.
