In this richly illustrated title the reader is treated to a visual feast of over 250 images, many of which are arranged in artful pairings of an archival illustration alongside one of McQuarrie's contemporary, colour photographs of this same view as it appears today. Woven into the imagery is a lively text adapted from a variety of sources that will provide many sides of this multi-facetted tale that has so shaped the city of Boston we know today.

Author Biography

John McQuarrie is an Ottawa-based author and photographer whose major clients have included Coors, Marlboro, McDonnell-Douglas and Lockheed. But his real passion is producing coffee table books. His earlier works focused on the Canadian Air Force from the Second World War to the Gulf War and the Canadian Armed Forces in their role as Peacekeepers. John then turned his camera onto the cattle business and working cowboys. And he is quick to point out that his unfulfilled childhood dream of becoming either a cowboy or a fighter pilot has, in later life, finally been realized vicariously through the lens of his camera.
