i'm having quite the time reading through the posts over at the offbunkerhill google page.

i did want to post some photos that i found after reading Theodore Barrow's postabout the Emil Jean Kosa painting depicting city hall as viewed from bunker hill, showing both the old times building and the state building at the same time

this 1929 photo is the exact same view point of the painting

1935 image of the state building with quite the shadow being cast on it by city hall. the exact hill street spot where the perspective of the Kosa painting was painted from is nicely seen in this photograph
