Considered by many to be the 1st modern library opened in the United States, in 1848, the Boston Public Library in Boston, Massachusetts houses over 6 million books, and a total of 22 million items. A current exhibit there highlights the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. The main staircase, pictured here, is made out of marble, and was crafted by Louis St. Gaudens. It is a tribute to Massachusetts Civil War infantry regiments the 2nd and the 12th. These Polaroids were taken with only available light, and with Fuji FP-100B 100 speed film.
