Sports Temples of Boston:

Original Participating Institutions

Photographer: Jones, Leslie, 1886-1967

Allston, Massachusetts
ca. 1950

The original Sports Temples of Boston was a collaborative effort of several institutions that provided digital images of original items held in their collections and also offered insight into Boston's sports architecture and sports history. Though the collection now only contains images digitized from the Boston Public Library collections, these institutions offer a wealth of history and artifacts about Boston's Sports Temples.
