    THE CATHEDRAL - where I go to "worship." A great, historical shot of those hallowed grounds!

    Thank you again for sharing THOUSANDS of images with the flickr community. One I'm glad to be a part of.

    - from a #1 fan of the game and of THIS PLACE!

    Amazing to see this old image of Fenway Park...I used to live about a 1/2 mile from there.

    Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Massachusetts Architecture, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

    here's a photo of the exterior from september 1992, approximately 80 years later.

    I just noticed the newly planted trees in the historic photo, maybe this photo is taken shortly after construction was completed. also, it looks like the tree in the 1992 photo might have been one of the original plantings.

    Note the air conditioner units in '92, another interesting difference.

    It's not just the AC units either...there's not even any windows there. Plus, you can see from my very similar photo (also, strangely from '92) that more of the brick flourishes are still intact.
