I’ll admit it: I cheated on this one. The new shot is an intersection too far east. The construction in the modern shot’s upper left is located where the elevated Green Line tracks are in the historical photo.

But the chance to overlay the trolley at the old C branch terminus with the new North Station headhouse, and to place the ghostly el tracks over Boston’s newest landmark was too way good to pass up.
