Whimsical Windows - Contrasting eras

Toby most graciously hosts the fun and educational meme Whimsical Windows - Delirious Doors. We look for architectural gems in windows, doors or even styles. It would seem that there is no city quite like Boston where the old and classic is surrounded by new. 

Looking out the window upstairs at the Quincy Market, we look across toward Faneuil Hall, last renovated in 1899 and flanked by a tall modern building from maybe the 1990s. Not at unattractive, but devoid of New England style details such as dormers and half-moon shaped windows. A great city with great architecture!

Layers and towers of windows here! Love the contrasting styles including the arched ones on the left!

That's a lot of varying window styles there! I guess it keeps the window washers busy!

Good eye - that really is a stark difference! I loved the time I spent in Boston, such a beautiful and very friendly city. Thanks so much for sharing, and for your enthusiasm about my meme :)
