Yeah. Just thought it since there was a "Historic Philly" thread, there should also be a "Historic Boston" thread.

So I'll get the ball rolling with a cool promotional video and a picture or two.

Oh and here's a photo similar to the one above.

I said I was going to stop in the last post, but I've had too much time on my hands today, so here are a few more pictures.

The Boston Public Library really has a wealth of photos on its Flickr page. I won't post all of them, but they're worth checking out.
