This neighborhood had one of the more interesting histories to research.  Begun as "Little Cambridge" and later split off to form its' own community, Brighton was originally a quiet pastoral town.  Soon the industry of the cattle trade came to the area, and Brighton became the "wild wild west of Boston."  Stockyards covered the area, and cattlemen, and ranchers haunted the many saloons, and inns.  Industry boomed, and soon, the need for a separate town became apparent, and Allston was created, with its own Post Office.  Featured on this modern-day map of the area are the three Universities that border it, Boston College, Harvard University, and Boston University.  Also depicted are the town's influential leaders, the development of modern industry, and St. Elizabeth's Hospital, the area's largest employer.  The 36X24print is dated 2008, and glows with warm rust-like tones.
