Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Hyde Park, incorporated as an individual town for a
mere fifty years before being annexed to Boston, is
a picturesque and vibrant neighborhood of considerable
natural charm. This remarkable new photographic history
chronicles the development of the area from its earliest
days through the mid-twentieth century.
T he development of Hyde Park began under the
direction of a group of well-to-do businessmen who
plotted the course of streets and built their own homes
along Fairmont Avenue. By the turn of the century,
Hyde Park was a bustling community with many local
industries: the American Tool & Machine Company,
the Brainard Milling Machine Company, and the paper
mills of Tileston & Hollingsworth were all located here.
Despite the existence of this strong industrial base,
however, Hyde Park never sacrificed the natural beauty
of attractions like the Neponset River, the Blue Hills,
and Stony Brook Valley. Mr. Sammarco's book celebrates
the coexistence of industry and natural surroundings
throughout Hyde Park's rich past.
