Brick and Mortar, Steel and Glass - Boston Architecture


A bastion of stalwart, stubborn history, a Federalist style building is flanked, almost threateningly, by later 19th century examples of architectural prowess.  I love the flag.  It is like an exclamation point on the little building.

But, the bigger brick buildings shouldn't be too cocky. 


What goes around, comes around, as the 19th century gets dwarfed by the 20th.
