Excerpt from Old Boston: Reproductions of Etchings in Half Tone
The etchings were made from pencil studies, on the spot, of the old passage-ways, streets, and by-ways which still show buildings of the period referred to; and care has been taken in many plates, while inserting the exact effect of the gambrel roofs and quaint chimneys of those buildings standing at the time, from 1886 to 1893. To also add, in conjunction with these, the present-day color of the local life of the quarter.
In addition to these original sketches from nature, there have been inserted prints from rare wet - plate negatives, taken from 1855 to 1869, owned by Mr. Blaney, not to be found on sale, and also from negatives taken by the author.
