Scenes of Boston


PUBLIC GARDENS, BOSTON  circa 1910

 

Meeting friends and promenading on the bridge was a favorite Sunday afternoon pastime at the Public Gardens.  Feeding the swans vied for popularity with a ride on the Swan Boats.

SWANBOAT, BOSTON PUBLIC GARDENS circa 1910

 

Who could resist a leisurely ride on a Swan boat on a warm sunny afternoon while Dad relaxed on a park bench and waited on shore? Then the family would all enjoy a walk through the park and view the magnificent plantings.


UNION OYSTER HOUSE, BOSTON

The Union Oyster House is the oldest restaurant in Boston and the oldest restaurant in continuous service in the U.S. — the doors have always been open to diners since 1826.  The precise date of construction is unknown, all that is known is that the building has stood on Union Street as a major local landmark for more than 250 years.  It was at the Oyster Bar that Daniel Webster, a constant customer, daily drank his tall tumbler of brandy and water with each half-dozen oysters, seldom having less than six plates.

Winner: Honorable Mention, Quincy Art Association, September 1999


BEACON HILL ROW

Beacon Hill is a fascinating, early 19th century neighborhood with narrow streets.  The row houses are nearly all in brick in Federal, Victorian and Georgian styles.  This National Historic District is exceptionally well-preserved, with well maintained houses, low-traffic streets paved with cobblestones and gas-lit street lighting.  An ideal surrounding for the urban romantic.

Winner: Best of Show, Weymouth Art Association, April 1999

STEAMBOATS, ROWE’S WHARF

The Mayflower, Queen of the Nantasket Steamship Company fleet is tied up at Rowe’s Wharf awaiting a return trip to Nantasket Beach. Fort Point Channel was a busy waterway during the 1920’s and 30’s as many steamboats ferried customers in and out of Boston Harbor. The Northern Bridge was an engineering marvel and the Custom House towered over the city of Boston.
