Description

Long a Boston landmark, the Brunswick Hotel was torn down to make room for a modern office building. The people gathered here had decided to enjoy one last afternoon in the hotel's tea room. Rubble can be seen outside of an open door, but it doesn't phase the guests enjoying their tea.
