Nowitz presents 132 full-color photographs of this bustling harbor city that helped launch the United States of America. The beautiful images convey Boston's unmistakable cityscapes, large and small, as well as the surrounding harbor. Nowitz's photographs convey clear impressions of distinct neighborhoods, public spaces, and fabulous architecture found throughout the city. Festively lit downtown streetscapes are counterbalanced by tranquil harbor scenes. Stunning sunrises share the pages with rich interiors of historic buildings. Photos of throngs of happy, celebrating Bostonians are offset by close-ups of the serene greenery found in a quiet nature preserve.
Informative captions complement the photographs, providing enough detail that even casual readers will learn something of Boston's fascinating history and contemporary culture.
