    A native of Alabama, Todd Keith has been a writer and editor for more than 10 years, producing articles for magazines such as National Geographic Traveler, Coastal Living, Robb Report, and Southern Living.

He lives in Birmingham Alabama.
    Nearly everywhere you look in Boston, you'll discover fascinating old-meets-new juxtapositions--some of the greatest landmarks of American history sit side-by-side with icons of modern American life. Discover America's oldest major city, its legendary locations, colorful neighborhoods, and thriving history in this newly updated second edition of the best-selling Boston Then & Now. * Specially commissioned contemporary photographs, including some previously unpublished images, are paired with archival images of the same locations for a unique tour of Boston over the centuries. * "One if by land, two if by sea!" Examine amazing then-and-now photographs of the Old North Church, where two lanterns were seen blazing from the steeple on April 18, 1775, essentially signaling the start of the American Revolution. Built in 1723, the Old North Church remains Boston's oldest standing church. * Planning a tea party? There's no better place to make arrangements than at the Old South Meeting House--this stately old building gained notoriety as the planning venue for the Boston Tea Party of 1773. Today, it's flanked by architecture spanning three centuries and continues to be an important gathering place for Bostonians. * Fenway Park--home of the Red Sox--is a historic monument unto itself. See America's oldest operating baseball stadium back in its heyday, and how Boston's beloved anachronism looks today having survived many attempts to build a New Fenway Park. * Tour the Paul Revere House, still standing at 19 North Square and check out the Bunker Hill Monument and U.S.S. Constitution, "Old Ironsides," berthed in Boston Harbor.
