This 1873 map highlights the proposed changes for several downtown streets in the Burnt District after the Great Fire of 1872. In the wake of the fire city planners saw an opportunity to widen several of Boston's downtown streets before the commercial district was rebuilt. After much debate and compromise with land owners these changes were implemented and became the layout of downtown Boston as it is today.
