Bates Hall

By KingBee
Bates Hall is the largest room in the very fine edifice that is Boston Public Library's McKim building in Copley Square. Everyone comes here to read and study. Add the visiting tourist element to the mix and it all becomes quite overwhelming. Whatever, this room - indeed, the entire building - is a testament to the craftsmanship and imagination of the men who put it all together. Wonderful, and a must-see for any visitor to the city.

Many thanks to Isabel, Allan and Richard for their lovely UAs for "Jackson Square".

Sitting at a table, pretending to study a text, actually studying the other readers.

Such a great idea to make a feature of one of those lamps in the library.

A great study, in more ways than one. Definite touch of the Harry Potters here.
