Photo and caption by Ted Larsen
Boston, Massachusetts has some of the most dramatic collections of architectural contrasts of any city in the Nation. Here is a perfect example. In the foreground we see the Old State House built in 1713 which is the oldest surviving building in the City. It was the official administrative headquarters in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. In the background is the 40 story, 510 foot Exchange Place, built in 1985. It is the 12th tallest building in Boston.
