Came here from Malyssa's bench blog. . .she is a regular visitor to my bench blog also. I absolutely love your bench post! Thanks for sharing the words also. I especially like the "heart" design on the legs. It is one gorgeous bench! I am so glad she sent me over here to look.
Charles P. Howard lived a few blocks away, at 124 Beacon Street. He served for many years in the State House, in both the executive and legislative branches, including a term as President of the State Senate. The bench was given in recognition for his leadership in limiting high-rise buildings in the surrounding neighborhood and preventing the demolition of the brownstone buildings that make the Back Bay a unique place to live.
