The city of Revere was one of the first suburbs of Boston, located approximately five miles north of the city. It is best known for its three-mile crescent-shaped beach that has entertained throngs of visitors through the years, but the beach is only a small fraction of the history of this great city. From shopping on Broadway, Revere Street, or Shirley Avenue to local names such as Horatio Alger Jr., Tony Conigliaro, and singer Jack Haley, Revere's history is explored through vintage images, many never before published. This book is a look back at a sweeter time, when a trip on the narrow-gauge railroad was a delightful adventure and the street was a more animated place for residents to sit and visit with neighbors.
