Historical Notes on back of card: "The Old State House, the oldest surviving public building in Boston, was built in 1713. It stands in its original location, but now is surrounded by contemporary buildings in the heart of Boston's financial district. The Old State House was the seat of colonial government. This image shows the balcony from which the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence in Boston took place. Note the lion and unicorn on the roof of the building, the same used in the Coat of Arms of the United Kingdom, a reminder of the building’s past.
The original building housed a Merchant's Exchange on the first floor and warehouses in the basement. On the second floor, the east side contained the Council Chamber of the Royal Governor while the west end of the second floor contained chambers for the Courts of Suffolk County and the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. The central portion contained the chambers for the elected Massachusetts Assembly. This chamber is notable for including public galleries, the first known example of such a feature being included in a chamber for elected officials."
