Waaaayyy back in the day!

Boston City Archives sent us these fantastic photos of the Dorchester Ave. neighborhood from 1911. A Boston Public Works Department photographer set out to document Dorchester Ave and some of its intersections in South Boston.

Boy, oh, boy, have things changed! Do these intersections look familiar?
