Thursday Doors: Charlestown


Those of you who have visited the US know that we love our flag and its design. Here are a pair of doors in Charlestown. Charlestown, is a section of Boston; it’s to the north. Several crime dramas have been centered around here, most notably The Town with Ben Affleck. The area around the Bunker Hill Monument reminds me more of Beacon Hill than any of the scenes in that movie, though.

The Charlestown Bridge

Charlestown Bridge

Since 1900, the Charlestown Bridge has carried traffic between Boston’s North End and Charlestown. For those who have seen the Ben Affleck movie The Town, this is the bridge the police try to close down to prevent the bank robbers from getting away. It only has another year left. It is scheduled to be replaced next year.
