This dude was standing in front of me during the Celtics parade.
This is in the Charleston Navy Yard. The Bell Tower would notify workers in nearby shops when their shifts started.
Before dry docks, boat hulls had to be repaired by leaning the boat on it's side. This was very dangerous and placed a lot of stress on the hull. The USS Constitution was the first ship that used Dry Dock 1 in Charleston Naval Yard for repairs.
This was built in 1833 of granite and steel and was one of America's first two granite dry docks. Dry Dock 1 made the repair of large Naval ships faster, easier and safer
This is right across from Bunker Hill. We drove through several such (Narrow!) streets today. Charleston is across the Charles River from Boston.
This is the oldest known drawing of the battle, made shortly after it occured in 1775
Colonel William Prescott led the fortifications and defense of the hill. Years later, a veteran of the battle said, "I tell ye that if it had not been for Colonel Prescott, there would have been no fight."
This building is at the top of the hill approximately where the Colonial forces built an earthen fortification to defend the high ground against British attch.
The only way to get to the tope of the granite monument at the top of Bunker Hill is to climb these steps, all 294 of them.
There isn't a lot of open space in Charleston, so I guess the squirrels take advantage of the grass on the Bunker Hill battlefield. Not the greatest of shots, but I like it that there are three all lined up.
The granite obelisk is 221 feet tall and was built between 1825 and 1843 (they had trouble raising money to complete it). The British attack was from this side of the hill.
As we were driving through Boston, Mom took a picture of this old bridge for the train. The date says 1910.
