In '72, EPA battled pollution; now it's politics - Article Photos 8/37

This May 1973 photo released by the U.S. National Archives shows neighborhood youngsters in the playground adjacent to Logan Airport at the end of Neptune Road in the East Boston neighborhood of Boston. The photo was taken for the "Documerica" program, 1972-1977, instituted by the then new Environmental Protection Agency to document subjects of environmental concern. The neighborhood was being threatened by encroaching construction for Logan Airport and related services. (AP Photo/U.S. National Archives, Michael Phillip Manheim)
