Over its 300 year history, the Old Corner Bookstore has been home to commercial ventures ranging from world-famous publishers to 5-cent pizza shops, reflecting the varied and diverse history of Boston itself. From this corner at Washington Street and School Street, the Old Corner Bookstore witnessed the birth of the American Revolution in the 1770’s, ushered in a gold-age of American literature in the 1850’s, and narrowly escaped Urban Renewal movement of the 1960’s.
To celebrate the beginning of its third century of continuous use, Historic Boston, Inc. has commissioned the artists Ethan Vogt, Giovanna Casimiro and a technical team assembled by Dudley Square Studios to create an Augmented Reality (A.R.) invention that reveals the Old Corner Bookstore’s past and envisions its future.
