1920s Boston from Above: Stunning Aerial Photos of Massachusetts Capital from a Century ago

In the early 1920s, Boston continued to develop. However, during the mid-1920s, Boston’s economy declined. The textile industry went into crisis, and the region’s industrial centers, established by Boston investment, incurred decades of hardship. Some mills went out of business, while others moved to the South in search of cheaper labor and raw material.
