About The Book
Boston’s legendary Scollay Square is still fondly remembered today as the home of vaudeville and burlesque theaters, tattoo parlors, hot dog stands, barrooms, bookstores, shooting galleries, and other entertainment attractions. Located in the heart of downtown Boston, Scollay Square was a place where people of all ages and walks of life, from Harvard College students to transient sailors on shore leave, went to forget their troubles and have a good time.
Now the long, colorful, and occasionally uproarious history of “Good Old Scollay Square” is recaptured in this lively look at the notorious Boston district. David Kruh chronicles the story of the Square from its origins in the Colonial era, through its heyday as an entertainment mecca, to current plans for the redevelopment of City Hall Plaza. He interweaves the personal reminiscences of Bostonians and entertainers with historical narrative to re-create the flavor and essence of Scollay Square. Here one will revisit the Old Howard Theater, Crawford House, and Joe & Nemo’s hot dog stand, and relive the days when vaudevillians, slapstick comedians, and stripteasers Ann Corio and Sally Keith ruled the Square.
Always Something Doing will refresh the memories of those old enough to recall the good times in Scollay Square, and it will provide younger Boston residents with a rich portrait of an enduring part of their city’s fascinating history.
