Wednesday Doorway

One of the Muse's on the pavilion outside the Boston Public Library and the three doorways. Notice the beautiful lanterns by the doorways, they are probably the best I have come across in town. Here is another view of the Dartmouth Street entrance to the BPL.

It's an impressive doorway. The Boston Public Library is a beautiful old building. I could imagine, that the interior of that building is impressive too.

Your public library is really gorgeous! The beautiful, ornate wrought iron ornaments set off the stone wonderfully.

Quite a monumental doorway! Your doorway series is grand - super! Well, so are most of your other photo, too!

This image celebrates the "palace for the people." Well done. What a serendipitous choice for your 1000th post. Congratulations!

I'm feeling right at home as I walk past this lovely outdoor space over to Copley Plaza to visit Au Bon Pain......

I love that building. I remember going there quite often when I lived in Back Bay as a teenager. One of my favorite places...that and the public gardens.
btw...have you read Dark Tide the great Boston molasses flood of 1919? It is surprisingly good and has quite a bit of Boston history.

The library reading room was a real find when I walked into it the first time! Wow! Nice angle on the sculptures outside the doors ... and yesterday, too.

My apologies for not having visited for quite some time!

What a gorgeous building! Splendiforous...I would love to spend a few hours browsing in there...and, oddly enough, I like the way libraries smell!
