1915 Boston Post newspaper found

This past Friday, remnants of the past were found in one of the least expected places: Government Center T station. Hidden behind a door jam in what used to be an entrance to the former Scollay Station was a 1915 edition of the Boston Post. A construction worker on site was the one to find the paper.

This section of Government Center has been abandoned for decades according to the MBTA. When re-opened, that part of the station will serve as an emergency egress from the Blue Line platforms.

Government Center has been closed and under construction since March 22, 2014. It is slated to open March 2016.
