Description

In the early twentieth century, Dorchester was called "the model town of New England." It was the most favored residential section of Boston, bathed by ocean winds from the east, picturesque rivers and hills to the south, the finest boulevards and parks to the west, and a great city just ten minutes away via the best rapid-transit system in the world. As a result, the population increased from fifteen hundred during the Revolutionary War to two hundred thousand in the early 1900s. Dorchester looks at this neighborly community of skilled mechanics, tradesmen, and professionals through vintage postcards.
