On item back: Boston Port/1740. The Port of Boston often handles "special cargo", like this Christmas tree sent from the City of Rotterdam to the people of Boston. Once offloaded from the vessel, the tree was trucked to Boston's Prudential Center, where it was the centerpiece of a Christmas tree-lighting and caroling event.
