Description:

This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: When Jim Botticelli launched the Dirty Old Boston Facebook page as a salute to the gritty city of his past, he unwittingly galvanized thousands of people who were also nostalgic for and curious about this crucial time in the city's development. Now captured in a rich and compelling collection, Dirty Old Boston chronicles the people, streets, and buildings from the postwar years to 1987, when a new wave of transformation began. Along with the ball games and dive bars, the four decades covered in this book document some of the city's most dramatic changes and tumultuous events--wholesale razing of neighborhoods, Boston's busing crisis, and the continual fight for affordable housing.Photographs are drawn from family albums, student photography projects, institutional archives, and professional collections, revealing a view of Boston shot from the street. What emerges is a narrative of a city tearing down and rebuilding, protesting and celebrating, fading and thriving. Illuminating Boston's singular tenacity and spirit, Dirty Old Boston presents her proud moments and doesn't shy away from her growing pains. Dirty Old Boston recalls the city as it used to be, the challenges it faced, the maddening traffic and outlandish politics, the simple pleasures of block parties and parades, and those neighborhood haunts where people found camaraderie amidst it all. Raw and beautiful, this book is a tribute to a city and its people. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: When Jim Botticelli launched the Dirty Old Boston Facebook page as a salute to the gritty city he once knew, he discovered that thousands of people were equally nostalgic and curious about Boston's recent past. And for good reason; after World War II, Boston changed rapidly, without apology, for better and worse, and in many ways forever. Dirty Old Boston chronicles the people, streets, and buildings from the postwar years to 1987. From ball games to dive bars, Dirty Old Boston also covers some of the city's most tumultuous events including the razing of neighborhoods, Boston's busing crisis, and the continual fight for affordable housing. Photographs assembled from family albums, student projects, institutional archives, and professional collections reveal Boston as seen from the streets. Illuminating Boston's tenacity and spirit, Dirty Old Boston presents our proud moments and our growing pains. Raw and beautiful, this book is an evocative tribute to the city and its people.

About the Author: Jim Botticelli moved to Boston in 1971 and never left. He is a former DJ at WMBR and WILD. He spent thirty years teaching for the Boston Public Schools and is the creator of the Dirty Old Boston Facebook page.
