This town is no stranger to turkeys. Above is a rude, slow pedestrian near Harvard Square, for example.

Wait, maybe Harvard Square is a turkey! We tried our hand at mapping this thought:

The Boston wharves turkey sports proudly struts around in Boston Common underpants and, naturally, needs corrective lenses to see Spectacle Island:

About Tim Wallace

I don't currently live in Boston, but it sure is my home. I was born in Boston and grew up frustrated by the Sox and mystified by the gigantic hole in Back Bay that existed during the construction of 500 Boylston. Boston is a city that somehow manages to never change while constantly changing. Its people, landscape and history are ripe for the 'graphing'. This blog exists as a case study to that effect. As a Boston native and a visual communication geek, I can't wait to see what we dig up. I hope you can't either.
