The scene in 2014:
This section of Tremont Street actually hasn’t changed much – the Granary Burying Ground is essentially the same, and a few of the buildings are still there, including the massive Tremont Building. Built in 1895 on the site of the Tremont House hotel, the office building still looks much the same as it did over 100 years ago.
