The Boston Public Library has assembled images of the greatest sports battlegrounds in Boston. These images span 100 years from 1872 through 1972. These "Sports Temples" are buildings with rich histories and have become consecrated ground in the history of sports in Boston. Some are world famous, others all but forgotten; some are still standing and some have been demolished. But they all, at one time, echoed with the roar of the crowd and bore mute witness to the feats of generations of athletes.
