Some more old pics ,Scollay Square related.....

Demolition of the old Scollay Square subway station has begun. In the foreground we can workers tearing
up a portion of the tunnel (notice the tiles on the underground wall) between Scollay and Adams Square. http://www.bambinomusical.com/Scollay/3-64subway.jpg

A really terrific view, from 1963, of the tunnel being dug for the realigned Green line trolley, which would now run from the new Government Center (Scollay Square) stop to Haymarket, but which used to stop at Adams Square before it, too, was demolished to make way for City Hall.
By the way, it is true that a portion of the old tunnel from Scollay to Adams Square was left intact. In the 1980s it was discovered that this section of the old tunnel could be reached from the basement of City Hall. Desperate for space, the city installed lighting and now uses the tunnel for storage. http://www.bambinomusical.com/Scollay/3 ... anueil.jpg

On the far right you can see rebar being placed for construction of the new Government Center T station
with its distinctive slant, in this ground-level view taken in 1963. Construction of the subway line that
will run from the station to Haymarket, under City Hall Plaza, runs across the picture.
