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.

Use the navigation menus above or below to see projects like Chris Sullivan's, featured below. View our map to see the locations of the projects. Use the "browse items" button to learn more about the historic photos used here, all of which are from the Flickr stream created by the Municipal Archives.

The slider below shows Trinity Church from the intersection of Clarendon and Stuart Street. The date of the original photo is unknown but we see many changes by February 2017, most dramatically the addition of the Hancock Tower.
