Today's City Weekly in the Boston Globe has a front page article on the lack of respect Edgar Allan Poe receives in his hometown of Boston. Bostonians obviously thought enough of Poe to name a square after him, near his birthplace--the 1928 map above shows the location. Part of the problem is that this part of Boston has been reconfigured--Carver Street has been lost, and Charles Street South has replaced it to make a straight line from Tremont Street to Charles Street. I believe what used to be the corner of Broadway and Fayette is still open space however, although no marker is in place. It would certainly be a simple matter to reinform the public of the historic name of this area of Bay Village.
