Map Show & Tell with the BRA Collection

Mar 10, 2021 · 7:00 pm

With nearly 200 newly-digitized items documenting urban transformation in 20th century, the Boston Redevelopment Authority Collection opens up a new window into urban change in Boston. Join us for an informal Show-and-Tell session, where we’ll look at some of the maps in the collection that our staff members—and you!—find most interesting. If you want, come ready to share a map from the collection that strikes your interest. It could be a map where you know a hidden story about its context, a map that you have questions about or strikes your curiosity, or it could be an example of how to use these BRA maps in a project. This will be an informal participatory session, and we welcome visitors with no prior experience in Boston historical research or digital map collections.

Co-sponsored by the Leventhal Map & Education Center and Maptime Boston.
