FC: Boston Field Trip 2009
1: Ian and I chilling in front of Fenway... with our matching sunglasses
2: Ben "B-Money" Otis showing his cash off.
3: A very funny begger sign
4: This is the State Capitol Building whose domed roof is covered with gold leaf. The dome was painted black during World War II so that enemy planes couldn't see it. The cost of restoring it was $300,000! The mayor of Boston traditionally only walks through the front door on the last day of office.
5: This is the oldest coffee shop in America. Now it's a very cool looking Starbucks, which is once again on a corner. Usually there is steam coming out of the pot but today it didn't The pot was used in the colonial days to tell people that coffee and tea was sold here.
6: This is Paul Revere's house. The glass is stained glass because window panes weren't invented yet and stained glass was considered cool back then. The door is studded with iron pegs because, iron pegs were considered a status symbol and were worth a lot of money. Paul Revere was the last child born in that house and yet it still stands today!
7: This is John Hancock's grave I'm not sure what year it was made because it is in roman numerals. but is one of the older if not, oldest marked graveyards in Boston. In the same graveyard there is a memorial to the four people who died in the Boston massacre.
8: This the window Paul Revere escaped out of during his midnight ride after he light the two lanterns. This was the highest point in Boston at the time that is why Paul Revere chose this church. Inside the church was a couple pews where a guy talked about Paul Revere and George Washington because in the church there is a plaster replica of exactly what George Washington looked like
9: This photo is during the duck tour with Disco Dan, Ian, Lily, Kyle C, and Tess a couple people got to drive the car/boat/duck thing in the water, very cool.
