The Boston Journalism Trail


How to use the map

Place your cursor on a numbered square above to see historical information and photos about the newspaper, building or area located there. Each panel that opens also includes a photo of what is in that location now. See the Index for chronological, numerical and alphabetical listings of the media included in the map. Numbers on the map start with No. 1, Boston’s first newspaper, and are chronologically placed through No. 30. Later additions may not be in chronological order. Site navigation is done through the section names at the TOP of each page.

The site was created with Apple software and it’s best viewed on browsers Firefox, Explorer and Safari. The interactive map was done through MapsAlive software. The font used is Constantia.
