Jordan Marsh had this huge Nativity scene on their facade on Summer Street.
Windows at Jordan's along Washington Street rivaled anything you could find in Manhattan
Washington St near Franklin was the home of Raymond's Department Store
This is a small part of the Boston that existed in the years after World War II.
I would like to thank the MIT Rotch Library for allowing me to share these photos with you.
Their entire collection of Boston circa 1955-64 is on Flickr. It captures Boston of that era.
