For almost one hundred years, the Boston Gas Company documented their various infrastructure and maintenance projects by employing local commercial photographers to document everything from laying gas pipes to the construction of company facilities in and around Boston. The Boston Gas Company photographs are in the collection of the Boston College Libraries, and visitors to this site can check out almost 400 images which date from 1882 to 1972 here. As a whole, the collection offers a rather diverse portrait of urban life, with shots that include men at work, neighborhoods like Dorchester and East Boston under development, and street signage. Visitors can peruse the photographs by Library of Congress subject headings, geographic area, or by corporate name. Of course, visitors are also most welcome to create their own customized search via the search engine.
