Boston as it could have been
What a fantastical view of the City of Boston! This image is taken from a vintage postcard (date unknown) courtesy of USGenWeb's Penny Postcards website. Personally, I'm wondering how all the flying things would avoid tangling in mid-air... and how the lady in the hat at the bottom right-hand corner could walk quickly enough to cross the tracks safely, not to mention see around her hat!
For more vintage postcards (but usually more realistic than this one), see the Penny Postcards website. The collection has a number of Suffolk County, Massachusetts images that I enjoyed.
