Place: Downtown Boston

This run waymarked a few landmarks listed in the American Guide Series: Massachusetts – A Guide to its Places and People.

The Old Globe Bookstore building exists, but the bookstore has been missing for a long time.

The Old State House is one of Boston’s wonderful landmarks – that almost was shipped brick by brick to Chicago.

The Ames Building is a surprising find. One, this Ames is related to the Ames shovel family but was involved in the Old Colony Railroad. Second, this building, abandoned for years, will finally be reopened as a hotel.
