IN PICTURES: Boston’s ‘ghost’ areas of 1965

February 1965 saw the Standard turn the spotlight on the town’s ‘ghost’ areas – the ‘derelict, decaying, and desolate’, as they were described by the Standard.

King Street, Lincoln Lane, and Caroline Street, which was located where Field Street meets Main Ridge East today, close to where John Adams Way cuts through the town, were all discussed in the piece.
