Collection # 6
The sixth series of cities is presented on a white background with the addition of topographic details delineated in taupe. Each of the cities in the series - Boston, San Francisco, Hollywood, Palm Springs - has inspired the spirit of the American Dream. Whether it was freedom from religious persecution, the promise of fortune and fame, or the desire for a golden age of leisure, that instigated the proliferation of these four cities in particular, they are all landmarks -historically and architecturally- that represent the persistence of a national ethos that is full of ambition and optimism.
Boston – One of the oldest cities in the United States, Boston was founded by Puritan colonists escaping religious persecution. It is a city established upon the spirit of independence, the same spirit which led the city’s citizens to play a prominent role in the American Revolution. Many of the sites relating to this period are included along the Freedom Trail, delineated on the plate by a red dashed line. The city is also the site of pivotal firsts, including the country’s first public school and subway system.
These porcelain plates measure 12” across. Key buildings are represented with persimmon icons, while bodies of water and public spaces are shown in blue and green. Each plate is boxed and includes a key to the buildings and spaces included on the plate.
