How has Boston changed over the years? Students in Professor Howard's History of Boston class (Spring 2017) at Wentworth Institute of Technology set out to document changes to the city's landscape. This exhibit contains their recreations of nearly 150 historic photographs shared publicly online through the Digital Access Initiative of the Municipal Archives of the City of Boston.
