This is a view of construction of the Casey Overpass in 1952 or 1953, taken by Ed Barrett. This has been a big week for demolition of the overpass, of course, as sections of the bridge over Washington Street were removed during night work.
Here are previous “Throwback Thursday” photos featuring construction of the Casey Overpass:

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, usually from the online archives of the Jamaica Plain Historical Society.
The Historical Society’s photo archive is a neighborhood treasure. Please visit it!
