Boston Common during a snow storm
- Boston Common during a snow storm
A blanket of snow covers Boston Common and weighs down the branches of the trees. A crew of workers shovel out the pathways. In the middle distance is the Brewer Fountain, which was donated by merchant Gardner Brewer to the city in 1868 and is a copy of a fountain which he saw at the 1855 Paris World's Fair, designed by Paul Lienard and sculpted by Mathurin Moreau. The dome of the State House towers over the wintry landscape.
