What does Framingham’s current landscape have to do with Boston traffic, downtown department stores, & regional highway development in the 1920s, 30s & 40s? A lot! Dr. Amy Finstein, architectural/urban historian at Mass College of Art & Design, for a look at how concerns over metro-Boston’s traffic congestion & economic vitality ultimately encouraged the exponential growth of western suburbs including Framingham in the 50s & 60s.
