Going In Town: An October 1959 Boston Shopping Spree
Hello, My Fellow Retro Boston Lovers!
Today we are going back to 1959! It is a wonderful Saturday morning...mid-October...Let's go "in town" and hit the stores! Our list of things to do is SO big! Boston is the place to shop...yes, we could go to the "new" malls....BUT Boston still has it all! We need to look for Halloween goodies as well. May have to stop in at Sears on Park Drive, they do have a great selection of costumes. But then it's back on the trolley to Park Street and all those stores!!! After we are done today we could catch a movie or....if you want to really splash out we could see a live stage show, but The Sound of Music is sold out...fancy that....it's only a pre-Broadway musical tryout:-)
Enjoy this selection of places to shop and things to do from October 1959 in Boston!!!
Boston born, Brookline raised Retro Boston Cultural Historian and very eager to get as many memories, photos and newspaper adverts of the once grand stores of the Downtown Boston we all knew and loved. Also I am very busy researching Boston area churches of the past that have since closed or merged into others. All who remember are welcome to contact me with their thoughts, memories and photos to add to any of my blogs.
