No. 1363: View of the Country towards Dorchester
Postcard #1363

Engraving. Shand Tucci in The Second Settlement says that the image in this 1776 print shows the five hills of Dorchester -- Bowdoin, Popes, Meeting House, Savin and Jones from Boston. Personally it would seem difficult to pick out which is which. And what of Ashmont and Codman hills? Are they too low to be seen behind the others?
