Boston Otters, what's your favorite historical picture?

I'm in Boston for a couple of days for work, and I'd like to pick up a historical photograph. I came across this collection from the Boston Historical Society, and I'm sure they have a lot of cool pics, but I don't even know where to start.

So, recommend one or two that you really like.

While I am a huge sports fan, I'd like to shy away from Fenway/Red Sox.

even if you are a little bit of a sports fan, you should try Fenway

You can see the USS cOnstitution, which is docked there, and there are a number of photgraphs, prints, etc available. This is it in the harbor for 200th anniversary

Well image tags didn't work. Here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:U...ution_1997.jpg

Boston from a captive balloon, October 13, 1860, James Wallace Black. This is the oldest conserved aerial photograph as Nadar's first works were lost.
