DOB In the Harbor.jpg
Photograph taken by Arthur Griffin of the Arthur Griffin Museum, Winchester

"The harbor light shining through the breeze that brings me back..."  Boz Scaggs
"I saw the harbor light...."  The Platters

The famed photographer Arthur Griffin, for whom a museum exists in Winchester, captured the essence of Boston Harbor in this photograph which we believe to have been taken in the late 40's. This combination of light, steam, smoke and scenery has it all from a moment that will never again exist, taken by photographic technology now so rare, no one could replicate it. Savor the flavor. This was a quiet moment of glory for Dirty Old Boston.
