This is the most awesomest post, ever! I love the photo of how it was all supposed to work out.

Even I, defender of the new, have to say I HATE City Hall Plaza and just about every building around it.

I was looking through a book yesterday which had photos of Scollay Square, and the author said that the building in front of the Sears Crescent building was actually torn down.

Does this mean the kettle was taken down & put back up, on the building that remained?

Thanks for a great post. I will look at that photo, all the time.

Have you read the book "Always Something Doing: Boston's Infamous Scollay Square"? I picked up a copy of it at the New England Mobile Book Fair recently in Newton - it was on sale there for only $5. I haven't yet had a chance to read it, but it looks like it's quite a nice collection of pictures and recollections of Scollay Square in its heyday. Strangely, I haven't seen this book in any other bookstores around Boston.

The author of that book, David Kruh, has a whole web site about Scollay Square. He has also put out a second book on ths subject, as part of the Arcadia "Images of America" series.
