TWENTY MINUTES BY MBTA. This is one of the reasons we love Melrose--because it is so close to Boston,and to places such as the Christian Science Center and the fascinating architecture of its Mother Church. At the left is the Christian Science Publishors building which at one time printed one of the finest daily newspaper ever--The Monitor. Right behind me while taking this photo, is Symphony Hall where the Boston Pops orchestra was playing. I even got a shot of the stage door matron through the stage door. Small wonders on an outing in Boston.
