A year ago: visiting the spectacular wooden 1:500 scale model of Moscow. The urban planning model was constructed between 1968-1986 and its existence was kept as a state secret until the fall of the USSR. The model has been open to the public since 1993 and is kept updated with new construction and developments in central Moscow.

April 18, 1775: Paul Revere, William Dawes, and Dr. Samuel Prescott go on their famous Midnight Ride.

I couldn’t resist posting a second Boston map today, although this one definitely isn’t contemporaneous. There are signs of industry scattered all over, and steamboat routes are a prominent feature. However, it is a lovely view of Boston in 1914!
