Stone Bench at Harvard Medical School. I was in the Longwood Medical Area of Boston visiting a friend in one of the hospitals and I stopped to take this picture. I couldn't resist the beautiful bench on the front lawn of the medical school.
The blue banner you see is a reminder that the whole campus area is a smoke free zone. There are also metal signs and other banners on all the buildings in the area. My first thought was of all the money they spent on those expensive signs and banners. It is a medical area and even though I am not a smoker I thought the number of signs posted excessive. The one responsible for posting the signs must be an over-zealous ex-smoker; or else he must have a brother-in-law working in the sign business:)
