The Church of the Covenant, on the corner of Berkeley and Newbury Streets (map), has been added to the National Register of Historic Places. The building contains 42 Tiffany stained glass windows that are an integral part of the largest Tiffany-designed church interior in the country.
Sometimes, when we stroll around Boston's historic districts on daily errands or regular visits, we forget that we're walking though a National Treasure that visitors come from all around the world to see.
A project is underway to restore the Tiffany windows. Tours of the interior will resume this spring. Until then, you can take this online tour.
Don't miss an Easter photo opportunity. This Canon PowerShot G15 camera will give you what you need to take stills and video of your Easter celebration. Canon's G series is our all-time favorite for everyday cameras. We own the G10 and G11. They're a little bigger than the compacts most people use, but let you shoot with automatic settings or easy-to-use manual controls that please the many pros who use them as second cameras. And, if you are ready to turn pro, follow our lead. Ed shoots with the Nikon D7000 Digital SLR too. We just added a Nikon D600 to our camera fleet and are extremely happy with the performance it has delivered.
