“Construction Work on the State House Should Be Done Now WHEN MEN NEED WORK”
"Beacon Hill Carried Out to Sea"
Still, the majority of the plans were concerned with the design of particular rooms. I went on a tour of the State House early this week, and was impressed with how lovely the building is, especially now that the Christmas decorations have started to go up. On the tour, I believe I saw the room with the portraits mentioned in an earlier post. Instead of representing the Senate Reading Room, as the plan indicated, the design looks like it reflects the current design of the Senate President’s Office. The office has been decorated for Christmas, and vintage toys were placed throughout the room. This would be a great time for those who haven't taken a tour to check it out.
I truly enjoyed my internship at the Massachusetts State Library, and would encourage anyone interested in architectural history and design,
