Located on Washington St, in Boston, MA, this location is just one block down from the Old South Meeting house, many of these buildings don't exist today, and not is much known about them. However the building with the pointy roof at the end, that is the old meeting house, which was built in 1729 and was one of the largest buildings in colonial Boston.
There were many important meetings there including the one in 1770 where it was used after the Boston Massacre. They had meetings to remove the British soldier who were in the town for 18 months. In 1773, they discussed what to do with the East India Company tea that was sitting in the Boston Harbor waiting to be unloaded and taxed. Then later on they used the building at the start of the Boston Tea Party. This building has watched a city grow around it.
This image took a lot longer than I expected it to take, there was a lot more detail the more I worked on it. There a re a ton of signs and reflections on the right side of the street. Only a few of these buildings really exist, and only on the far end.
