Thanks for uploading all these pictures, Robert. I love being a virtual tourist -- and visiting the very first "Publick Place for the Resort of Learned Men"

Great pictures. I am glad you put up a pic of the outside. I had a friend who interned there. She said it was amazing.

I will be looking for my flower tomorrow ;o)
