Some pictures of the Church that Paul Revere signaled with lanterns warning of the impending attack by British troops.
The two windows side by side where the lanterns signals were sent to the other side of the river.
Many people lined up to enter the church.
Pipe organ in the church is still working.
Old clock still working as the time was right.
The church interior was pristine white.

I took these pictures July 2nd. Too bad the cherry picker was in the picture but the city is setting up for the July 4th. celebrations.
Since 1742, Faneuil Hall has served as a public marketplace and meeting hall for the town of Boston. It is the site of numerous famous speeches over the years from such freedom seekers as Samuel Adams, Frederick Douglas, and Lucy Stone. Now run by Boston National Historical Park, it serves as the start of the Freedom Trail and street level market stalls still operate much as they would have in 1812. Summer Scholars will visit the Great Hall of Faneuil Hall to take part in a town meeting to debate the declaration of war in 1812.

Grand Children - Niagara on the Lake
Picture taken August 11, 2014 while visiting Niagara on the Lake, Ontario Canada. I cropped the picture and removed the colour because the background was making a distraction from the subjects. I brushed the colour back in by hand. That took a couple of hours or so. The bus in the background drove up just as I was about to snap the picture and the sidewalk was busy with people wanting to take pictures of the two actors.
We visit Niagara on the Lake every year with the children as it is only an hour from home and they love the park and the large wading pool. They also love the ice cream, the Haunted store and the Christmas store. Flowers in the park and around the town are quite a show.
