Description

The Boston neighborhood known as the South End (see notes) was once marshland that was filled in the 1840s as a solution to overcrowding in the Back Bay area. Renowned architect Charles Bulfinch created a plan for the South End neighborhood’s architecture that consisted of connected brick townhouses. The homes vary in style and detail, but have consistent elements such as iron railings, bay windows, and brick sidewalks.

Notes

(Although the exact location of the photograph is not confirmed, the architectural details of the townhouses and neighborhood is consistent with the South End neighborhood of Boston)
