Boston in the 1970s Through Fascinating Black and White Photos

The 1970s was a tumultuous decade in Boston. Vietnam War protests were held across the country – 50,000 people attended one such event in April 1970 in Boston.

On a local level, the Boston school desegregation conflict dominated the whole decade. The John Hancock Building went up – and down – after a 1973 storm sent some of its glass panels crashing to the ground. And, in 1978, a massive blizzard struck Boston.

These fascinating black and white photos were taken by Meredith Jacobson Marciano that show street scenes of Boston in the late 1970s.
