City Plate - Boston

$50.00
Part of our sixth series of City Plates.  The theme of this sixth collection is "American Dreams." Each of the cities in the series (Boston, San Francisco, Hollywood, and 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 spurred the growth of these four cities, they are all landmarks—historically and architecturally— that represent the persistence of a national ethos full of ambition and optimism.

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 many of the its 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 persimmon dashed line.  The city is also the site of pivotal firsts, including the country’s first public school and subway system.
