The large brick building (at image center) was constructed in late 1901 as a grammar school. It was later used by the US Army during World War II as a communications center.
This view is from north of Cambridge Street looking south into the beautiful Beacon Hill section of Boston. This architecturally significant neighborhood includes buildings designed by Charles Bulfinch, and has been home to many famous people, including Louisa May Alcott, Robert Frost and John Hancock.

    Interesting image. Always wanted to visit Boston but have never made it. We have planned several trips and they have all fallen through. Lovely photo!

  • The driving is terrible (confusing one-way streets, traffic, detours and crowds of students walking) but if you ever need medical attention Mass General was voted #1 in USA last fall (2012). Thanks for your comment! ☺♥
