Description

This is a view of Haymarket Square from 20 Canal Street looking south in Boston, Massachusetts.  The photo was taken on September 17, 1917. 

The street is in good shape, with streetcar tracks clearly visible.  The short building in the right foreground is a subway station.

Several advertisements are visible.  One for the Blackstone and one touting Utopian Chocolates.  The top of the Custom House Tower in barely visible just behind the Utopian Chocolates sign.

This whole area was changed drastically during the urban renewal period of the 1950's and early 1960's.
