Kaylah Rose: Wood Island was one of many MBTA stations that went through renovation to make the station large enough to fit six rather than four train carts as well as making the stations handicap accessible. It was difficult to get a good recreation photo because the changes were so drastic.




These photos are of the center of Day Square in 1990 (left) and 2017 and the slider was created by Rachel Bonia. The square has a newer space right in the center that has been converted to a half-green-space-half-parking lot. The area had just been updated around 1990 as you can see in the billboard, East Bostonians were celebrating "The New Day Square."
