This beautifully colored bird’s-eye view print of Boston and environs was drawn and published by Geo. H. Walker & Co. in 1905. Boston Harbor was one of America’s largest trading centers in the early 1900's.
In the years before manufacturing interests began moving westward, 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.
The illustration shows railroad routes and Boston waterways. Islands are labeled and lighthouses indicated.
