You could write a book about it


People who made a difference, past and present, are the subject of the new book “Legendary Locals”. The profiles include the Winships and their support for soldiers of George Washington, Olympic gold medal winner Harold Connolly, and present-day state representative Kevin Honan. Bill Marchione, author of “The Bull in the Garden” and a key founder of the BAHS, wrote the foreword.

The author, Linda Mishkin, will have a book signing on April 6th from 1:00 to 3:00PM at the BAHS Heritage Museum/Veronica Smith Center, 20 Chestnut Hill Avenue. She will do a repeat embossing on May 7th from 6:30-8:00PM at the Faneuil Branch Library, 419 Faneuil Street in Oak Square.

Allston, today and back in the day

Thanks to Matthew in Boston and the Brighton Allston Historical Society, this collection of photos shows views of places in Allston, today and days past.

Matt’s version is here, has the same photos but allows you to slide over an image, giving you a different view of the location.

Hat tip Adam at UH.
