Over 130 magnificent panoramic photographs bring Boston to life. These wide-angle images of 120 degrees or more offer a unique and exciting portrayal of this nearly 400 year-old city. It begins with views of the characteristic lighthouses that mark the channels in the outer harbor and for centuries have guided mariners into port. Sights around Boston include the historic forts built to protect the city, the Harborwalk around the waterfront, and world-class museums, cultural sites, and architectural landmarks steeped in history. Boston's charming and diverse neighborhoods, the source of the city's vitality, are pictured, as are locations on which its reputation rests: great medical facilities, educational institutions, parks, and public gardens. The red brick Freedom Trail takes the reader past historical landmarks that were significant in the American Revolution. The wide perspective of the images gives the reader a sense of being in the midst of this splendid city. This is a photographic extravaganza, an essential book for all who treasure the Boston experience.
