One of the infamous “salt and pepper shakers” that make the Longfellow Bridge so recognizable (the bridge appears several times in McCloskey’s illustrations). Boston, MA. *also an older photo of mine
Mrs. Mallard’s closeup. Boston, MA.
The Civil War memorial in the Boston Public Gardens (because I’m also a history nerd). Boston, MA.
Civil War monument close-up. Boston, MA.
The Swan Boats weren’t running yet, but the carousel was up and twirling, including an array of animals like this little guy. Boston, MA.
It’s a little blurry but it’s one of my favorite signs in the city (along with the Citgo sign). Boston, MA.
