Apparent in this near-vertical photograph are Boston and surrounding communities. Situated at the head of Boston Bay at the mouths of the Mystic and Charles Rivers, Boston is the largest city in New England. A major financial and cultural center, Boston is also a leading port, an important fishing center, and the greatest wool market in the United States. The city and surrounding area are rich in history, especially the American Revolutionary War period. Visible are the runways of Logan International Airport (center), major transportation arteries radiating outward from the central city, and Massachusetts Bay.
