Places to visit in Кеймбридж. Languages: ru, he, en

At the end of the 19th century, swamps draining along the banks of the Charles River was almost completed. This change allowed the town of Cambridge to expand eastward. As a result, the old coastal strip became known as the Old Port, or simply the Port. Along these shores, there is a beautiful embankment, along which it is pleasant to jog or walk. The parks located in these places today are fraught with amazing ancient stories. For example, the sewing machine was invented in 1846 by Elias Howe, Jr. at 55 Cherry Street in Port, Cambridge. Howe patented this invention. The famous Isaac Singer - the king of sewing machines, paid Howe patent royalties. In addition, the Port area of Cambridge was the site of the first telephone conversation between Alexander Graham Bell and Thomas Watson on October 9, 1876. Watson was in the Porto office, and Bell was in the Cambridge Street office in Boston.
