City in Flames Twenty Five years ago
the City of Lynn
Massachusetts experienced its second great fire
. Devastating several downtown industrial buildings dating to the rise of the Shoe industry. All of which were undergoing redevelopment. While nowhere near as big as the Great Boston Fire
of 1872, or the various Chelsea fires
, the tragedy of the story
is the empty wasteland that still sits after all these years. Today the Boston Globe dug up several articles from their pre Web vaults. The Lynn Museum
has an exhibit, and the Lynn Library will have a slideshow.
