The historic city of Boston is filled with hundreds of interesting landmarks, statues, and monuments. If you are a tourist, you may stop to read the written words on the markers or pause to take a close-up look at the statues. However, many of us locals pass by these fixtures time and time again without thinking twice about what they represent. Every marker is a link to the city’s past and each one has its own special story to tell. The steaming tea kettle in Boston’s Government Center is one landmark that I have always wondered about.
