A 1972 photo of the Central #Library’s atrium held over the same spot under construction today. The railings are all being replaced and upgraded to meet current codes. #architecture #renovation #boston #bostonpubliclibrary #copleysquare #libraries

It’s the first day of school for many students in Boston -- so for #throwbackthursday we bring you this charming, yet not altogether cheery class portrait from 1893 (approx.). This image is part of the #digitized Boston Pictorial Archive. #tbt #digitization #photography #boston #library #bostonpubliclibrary #collections

A peek across a portion of the Central #Library’s in-progress second floor. Paint and carpet make such a difference. Boylston Street is to the right and Exeter Street is ahead in this image. #color #architecture #renovation #boston #bostonpubliclibrary #copleysquare #libraries

A view inside the children’s library being built on the second floor of the Central #Library in #CopleySquare. It’s all new construction, but you can just make out some of the existing granite in the middle of the image.
