Zoom In

I am working on a short piece that revolves around this image — well, this is a detail of the photograph that focuses on the eastern edge of the Prudential Center, circa 1965, right around the time the complex was dedicated.  That’s the War Memorial Auditorium and Sheraton-Boston Hotel in the foreground.  You can clearly see the “Ring Road” that circumnavigated the site and the blandly landscaped North Plaza.  The Mass Pike runs through the site (it is enveloped in the Pru’s parking garages) and you can see a black swatch at the top of this image that caps the urban highway.
