On yesterday's trip downtown #LoveBoston the idea was to go skating at the #BostonCommonFrogPond - too cold for that. While others went to shop at #FaneuilHall I walked and took pictures, with a couple stops at Starbucks to warm up my numb fingers 😬 I love the historic feel of the city! #BostonCommon #BostonCommons #OldStateHouse #OldStateHouseBoston #PrudentialTower #Cityscape @boston_mayor @boston #BostonDotCom

Some more memories from my Boston visit. Here I am in front of The Old State House, one of the landmarks on Boston's Freedom Trail, It is an historic building in Boston, built in 1713, it was the seat of the Massachusetts General Court until 1798, is one of the oldest public buildings in the United States and it is the oldest surviving public building in Boston. . . The Declaration of Independence was first read to the citizens of Boston from the front balcony of the Old State house on July 18, 1776. . . The golden lion on top of the building represents England, the silver unicorn represents Scotland. . . Throwback series continues.... . . . . . . . #usa #boston #massachussets #oldstatehouse #oldstatehouseboston #hystory #massachussetsgeneralcourt #freedomtrail #bostonfreedomtrail #goldenlion #silverunicorn #england #schotland #indipendence #indipendencesymbol #bostonmassacre

My favorite was the Old State house, where the Declaration of Independence was read from the balcony. We ventured inside and the staircase is incredible! #weibsonwheels #fulltimers #oldstatehouseboston
In Downtown #oldstatehouseboston
The Old State House (that little, pretty house surrounded by skyscrapers) was the center of attention back in 1776, when the Declaration of Independence was proclaimed from the tiny balcony... #sundayhistory 📜
This wonderful book I found in the offices of the @bostoniansociety at the #oldstatehouseboston . “A Fine Dessert” by Emily Jenkins and Sophie Blackall takes you through four centuries of families making blackberry fool, highlighting changing social and racial disparities, different family dynamics, and of course different food preparation methods. I like when children’s books are honest and don’t whitewash upsetting aspects of history any more than necessary for the audience. It’s gorgeously illustrated and includes the recipe, of course. #childrensbooks #bookstagram #book #dessert #foodhistory #desserts #americanhistory #books #childrenslit #picturebook

The Old State House ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• B O S T O N, M A ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Americas oldest example of British architecture. The House was built with symbols of Royal Britain in the form of the lion & unicorn (as seen in the Royal coat of arms of Great Britain). After the Declaration of Independence was read aloud on the balcony of the house, the townspeople tore these symbols & burned them with enthusiasm. They were later replaced in 1881 with new ones • • • • #boston #bostonstrong #beantown #oldstatehouseboston #declarationofindependence #massachusetts #ma #newengland #redsox #pats #patriots #usa #america #earthpic #travel #globetrotter #travelgram #instatravel #wanderlust #explore #lonelyplanet #vacay #vacation #iheartboston #adventure #travelphotography #roadtrip #ilovetravel #traveltheworld #travellife
Boston August 2017 - Old State House #boston #freedomtrail #oldstatehouse #oldstatehouseboston
Old State House, Boston Spiralling up and down, like we can hardly get off from the chain of cities and histories. Our living is relying so much on urban environment and cities, is there a time for us to break this chain? Or this will never happen on us anymore? #cities #urban #spiral #stair #staircase #neverending #history #chain #architecture #boston #usa #oldstatehouse #oldstatehousemuseum #oldstatehouseboston #freedom #freedomtrail #breakthechain
