Boston & Albany R. R. – Boston Yard and Construction of South Station, Boston, Mass. are two distinct collections of cyanotype photographs recording the railroad infrastructure in Boston in the 1890s. The forty-nine Boston and Albany Railroad Company photographs were made by C. S. Harrington as documentation of the firm’s buildings before the construction of South Station. The South Station collection consists of fifty-three photographs taken by the Boston Terminal Company during the construction of the city’s main rail and subway terminal. In addition to chronicling the erection of South Station, this collection contains photographs of the old passenger depots and a group portrait of the project engineers and architects.
