Tunnels in Boston

East Boston Tunnel Entrance, Near Atlantic Avenue Station

Reverse side

Note the postmark 1908

This tunnel predates the Sumner Tunnel and was for “trolly cars” only.

I never realized this. For me I just remember the Sumner Tunnel in the 1940’s. And that memory I associate with my father. Little did I realize how new the Sumner Tunnel was at that time. It was built in 1947.
