Walking Along Old Byways

Image: Boston Byways & Highways

Kellscraft continues to amaze with its on-line collection of rare, old books, which it offers to the public free of charge. Yr humble correspondent's latest find at that august archive is Boston: Its Byways & Highways, by John Albert Seaford, published circa 1914. The text itself is of no particular historical significance, merely summarizing the histories of various famous buildings and neighborhoods, but the sketches are of superb quality (as evidenced by the one posted above).

For the artwork alone, yr humble correspondent heartily recommends Mr Seaford's work.
