As my friend Jonathan would say, “on a human scale.”
The Osborn Block (front) and the Twohy (rear) at sunset. In the distance, you can almost make out Globe Elevators. One of my favorite photos of 2013.

Around the corner from the old boiler room.
Looking out the second-floor lighthouse office window. On this visit, the last ice of the season was slowly drifting into the harbor.

The top floor’s old-fashioned hospital ways were too much to pass without a photo or two… with the paint falling off the walls it was as if the building was shedding its skin in an effort to become rejuvenated or useful.
