This is the second time we’ve featured a view of construction of the Casey Overpass in 1952 or 1953, taken by Ed Barrett, as our Throwback Thursday Photo of the Day. Here’s the previous photo. The overpass, of course, is is being razed and replaced with a network of surface roads.
Each weekday we post a random image from around the neighborhood. For our Photo of the Day on Thursdays, we’ll highlight an image of old JP from the online archives of the Jamaica Plain Historical Society.
The Historical Society’s photo archive is a neighborhood treasure. Please visit it!
