View of Boston, Suffolk County, M.A., 1905 / drawn & published by A. F. Poole.

This bird’s-eye view print of “Twentieth Century Boston” was drawn by A. F. Poole and engraved by A. W. Elson & Co. in 1905. Boston Harbor was one of America’s largest trade centers in the early 1900's. In the 1800's, Boston began a campaign of enlargement, as ravines 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.

As manufacturing began to move west, Boston progressed into the twentieth century as a major trade and business center.

John F. Kennedy’s grandfather John F. Fitzgerald was elected mayor of Boston in 1906.

The illustration of Twentieth Century Boston shows buildings, bridges, railroad routes and Boston’s waterways and wharves.
