MIT Professor Creates Time-Lapse Drive Around 1950’s Boston [VIDEO]

MIT professor Kevin Lynch attached a small camera to the dashboard of his car back in 1958, and filmed an entire day’s worth of driving around the city of Boston. He has released his footage as a stunning time-lapse video that awesomely captures the city from over half a century ago.

Lynch produced the film as part of his studies into the “theory of city form and human perceptions of the city,” according to the video.

    I viewed the MIT video and spotted the Prudential building, completed in 1964, and a Ford Galaxy from the early 60s. Fun to watch though.
