Jack Lueders-Booth's The Orange Line is a tenderly produced archive of a community that lived and worked along the southern route of Boston Public Transportation’s Orange Line: an antiquated, clattering, overhead railway that was constructed in 1901. The pavement vibrating din of this deteriorating railway, its unsightliness, its increasing crime rate, and its inefficiency depressed property values in the neighbourhoods that it served. An unintended consequence was affordable housing for this largely low-income population.
