    Yes. My wife worked in the New England Merchants National Bank at 28 State St., Right across from the Old State House. I drove a delivery van around Boston and if I was in her area I'd pick us up coffee and bagels at the Steaming Kettle. They were YUMMY!!

    It is a Starbucks now... moved from around the corner I think. Was it still steaming then? It has been restored which is cool. I haven't seen it in person myself.

    Either have I. I didn't know it had been preserved, just figured it was junked. Nice to know it's still around, kinda like the Citgo Sign.

    I think the CITGO sign was saved by being sold separately from the building in the last few years. That, as we know, IS available in N scale!

    I never saw it so shiny! It was all tarnished and dirty. It really is quite beautiful.
