Weathered brick sidewalks and houses, gas lamps.... quintessential Beacon Hill.
A vine-shaded entryway with urns and the strangest "doorbell" ever...
A close-up of the doorbell, which I was very tempted to test.
The graceful double staircase to the Friends' Meetinghouse.
This dog is relaxing by the Meetinghouse stairs.
I think he's lost; he looks like he belongs in a cemetery.
Lovely Georgian details.
Another Georgian entryway with a spider-web fanlight and
its own purple-paned gas lamp and a lace-cap hydrangea about to bloom.
How about some ivy?
A not-so-secret Beacon Hill garden with an unlocked gate.
This house faces that garden. Imagine coming home....
Yeah, right. I wish.
There must be some creative condos in this Gothic Revival building.
Great windows, at least.
