Looking A Little Green

And not the first time that could be said of Mr. Poe.

 

This monument to Edgar Allan Poe was erected in October. It honors Poe's roots in Boston and shows him returning to the building he once lived in, just down Charles Street. He stands in "Poe Square," which was named after on Euriabam Daniel Pograham, a mid-1800s grocer and philanthropist known as "Poe" to his friends. He had a shop in that area.

 

(Ho, ho.)

 

I wrote such a long comment on this photo that I decided to make it into a blog post instead. Interested? See you over on ihnatko.com.
