Boston Public Library






I took a trip a couple weekends ago to finally get my shiny sky blue Boston Public Library card - and of course my camera came along.  What a stunning building.

Beautiful! I really enjoyed having a picnic in the interior courtyard the last time that I was in Boston. DId you get to the reading room and the new map room? I hope to take one of the free architectural tours at some point.

Thanks!

We did peek into the map room for awhile; I'm completely fascinated by the history of Boston and how it became the size and shape it is today. It was astonishing to look at old maps and try and figure out what was where when.

They also had a really cool exhibit on elections and voting with all sorts of maps by political affiliation and voting history.
