Boston on the Silver Screen

Yr humble correspondent would to like to thank the entirely exceptional Mr D— for pointing out the "First Films of the City (1901 - 1905)" collection over at the Boston Public Library. These little movie-ettes are available for viewing on-line — ah, will the wonders of the Internet ever cease? — & any lover of Bostonia ought really to check them out. Yr humble correspondent's favorite is "Seeing Boston," a six-minute trolley tour that takes one on a "whirlwind ride through the busy streets of downtown Boston past Jordan Marsh and along Boylston Street to Copley Square passing by the Boston Public Library."

Mr D— has, once again, earned my undying gratitude.
