Angell Memorial Plaza

This post is dedicated to Brattcat of Brattleboro who requested a photo of the entire lion fountain, which I posted a couple of weeks ago. The Lion Fountain is really a memorial plaza dedicated to George Thorndike Angell, a noted animal rights activist and founder of the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (MSPCA) in 1868. As you can see in this photo, when the weather is not cold or rainy, the plaza is a coveted spot in the Financial District to have lunch.

I love the photo in your header. That is what I think of when I think of Boston. I have got to get myself down there soon.

I've never had a photo dedicated to me. Thanks, Clueless! And yes, I can see those lions at the bottom of the monument. It looks like it was a lovely sunny day when you took this shot, one of the few we've had this June. Thanks again!

1)I understand why people come here at lunch time; The place seems a little oasis among the tall buildings.
2)First time I saw your picture of The lion fountain, I thought it was very different from what I see on your today's picture. I imagined a much more modern one.
3)I did not know who was this man, followed the link and discovered a great person worth of admiration.
4)I went on Brattcat blog and LOVED the pictures I saw.I'll go back.
5)Conclusion: that was a very interesting and rich post!Thank you!

What a nice gesture to dedicate your photo to Brattcat, and very fitting. She leaves the most insightful observations in her comments on my Daily Photo site and it is gratifying that her contributions to the dialogue among the Daily Photo community are recognized.

I can see why it's a coveted place...I'd have lunch there anytime!

Thanks, Brattcat!
