Dorchester Illustration of the Day no. 1673 Gallivan Boulevard

Dorchester Illustration of the Day no. 1673


The Neponset Drive In Theatre is the most notable feature in this aerial photograph from 1956 of Gallivan Boulevard and Neponset Circle.  There is an  Esso gas station at lower right at the corner of Hallet Street, and I think there is a gas station still in that location. The Neponset River Bridge was at grade level.
