This is not a print. It is a real photo.

This is a great old photograph of Scollay Square taken, I would think, judging from the cars and dress, around the '20s . Let me know if you know. The picture is in great condition and measures 17.5 x 16. It is mounted on card. The square was officially memorialized as Scollay Square in 1838, after William Scollay, who bought a landmark merchant building at the corner of Cambridge and Court Streets in 1795. The Square was also a flashpoint for the early abolitionist movement. Garrison was attacked twice there for printing his anti-slavery newspaper, The Liberator. Sarah Parker Redmond's first act of civil disobedience occurred in 1853 when she refused to sit in the 'white' section but instead chose the 'black' section.

For you students of Boston's history this is a great purchase.

As always, thank you for looking.
