Forgotten Boston

The folks over at the wonderful website, Forgotten New York, have a short but jam-packed page of Boston goodies. From old ads painted on the sides of buildings to a peculiar ten-foot-wide house, they've got a sampling of everything "forgotten" in Boston.

Among my favorites are the lamppost mailboxes on Beacon Hill, and the great "Street Scenes" featuring the pre-renovation facade of the Opera House. This page and its information are several years old, but the content is still quite interesting.

Check out Forgotten Boston for some great photos and some great ideas on some urban exploration trips of your own!

P.S. -- An update with photos from the last run of the LRV is coming. Stay tuned!

Thanks for writing about this. I didn't know about the site, but I do know about those old painted signs on the sides of Boston buildings. I started photographing them a while ago.

That's wonderful, glad you've taken an interest in these fading relics!

Every time I pass by one, I just imagine what it looked like in its glory days, and wonder how much longer it has before its last traces fade away.
