Layers of History

Life in an Old City Posted by Hello

One of my favorite things about old cities is illustrated in this photo. I took this on Tremont Street in the Theater District here in Boston. The layers of the past over time, the encrustation of the old with the new and the old still peeking through. I wonder what that previous building was. Someone's house? An old shoestore? Who lived or worked there? What did they see? What was their life like? What did the city look like then?

There is just something about old cities.
