This week I’ve been spending some time with Karina Guadencio, an Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies specwriter from Brazil. In addition to lots of discussion in the office, we’ve been to a Boston Chapter CSI meeting, had lunch with the master specwriting team at Kalin Associates, conducted a punch list at Harvard Law School, and visited Columbus Door (thanks everyone!). It’s been a whirlwind tour! Add the cold and last night’s snow, and I think she’s ready to head south (especially since she’s having dinner with my family tonight! :D).
Tonight we saw some beautiful Boston doors that I had never seen before – the entrance doors on the Old City Hall. The building was built in 1865, in the French Second Empire Style. I would guess that the main entrance doors are at least 15 feet tall, and 3+ inches thick. Each has a round marble inlay and ornate panels and molding. Next time you’re walking the Freedom Trail, stop and take a look!

When we drove home last night I pointed out the “new” city hall to Karina. She wasn’t impressed.
