Boston MA: The resurgence of the “Combat Zone” – theater district

A note from THS Member and historian DAVID GUSS with three great links to explore:

Here are two nice links about the current photography show on the Combat Show which has just opened in Boston. Of course the Combat Zone was
Boston’s original Theatre district and then became the designated adult
entertainment zone after the destruction of Scollay Square and has now
become the Mid Town Theatre district once again, as visited during our
Boston Conclave. The 1932 Paramount has just reopened as well as part of Emerson College. The Boston Herald did an excellent piece on it. Below
is a link to a series of photos showing the restoration which I’m sure
our members will want to see.
