Condition - very good. Album marks on corners.
- In 1742 Peter Faneuil, Boston's wealthiest merchant, built Faneuil Hall as a gift to the city.
- The edifice was home to merchants, fishermen, and meat and produce sellers, and provided a platform for the country's most famous orators. It is where colonists first protested the Sugar Act in 1764 and established the doctrine of "no taxation without representation."
- Firebrand Samuel Adams rallied the citizens of Boston to the cause of independence from Great Britain in the hallowed Hall, and George Washington toasted the nation there on its first birthday.
