|An Illustration from 1881 features the green way that begins at the western side of the Public Garden. |
The greenway is also known as The Commonwealth Mall which displays several statues and was beautifully
designed by Arthur Delevan Gilman and Frederick Law Olmstead.
|Every entrance tells it's own architectural story.|
|Movement in a walkway is always more visually interesting and welcoming.|
|This corner home and it's Mansard slate roof boast of grand days.|
I always wonder what stories it would tell me if it could.
|A room with a view and black iron balconies sit above the arched coined windows below.|
|I love an entrance where the steps become grander as they descend. It is typical in the southern states like Savannah, Georgia where the entrance seems to open up and wrap it's arms around you. A true sign that you are welcome.|
|Aged and Verde Gris balconies dress the curved windows.|
|The brick and iron work are lovely, however the birch is the real show stopper. I love the simplicity of dressing the entrance with this organic display that will last all winter long. |
