What Happened Here Boston
What Happened Here? Boston joins our expanding flotilla of such decks devoted to cities (Chicago, London, New York, San Francisco, Washington) and other popular travel destinations (England and Ireland, so far) to inform visitors, residents, or part-time historians. Sticking to its predecessors successful format, What Happened Here? Boston presents an address, a date, and a bit of map on one side of each card. The other side reveals What Happened There and the events historical context. Readers will learn Eugene ONeills ruefully funny last words, and learn about the 1950 Brinks Job that brought its perpetrators a take of $2,775,000, Ben Franklins presumably happy childhood and Edgar Allan Poes strange, sad one, and the even stranger Great North End Molasses Floodand forty-three other entertaining details of Bostons long history.
