Quick Description: Why this bust is in front of an ordinary building, along a street that's barely one car wide, on the edge of both the Chinatown and the Theatre District, is anyone's guess.

Long Description:
In Boston, in an area on the edge of both Chinatown and the Theatre District, is a narrow way called Beach Street. A block south of Washington is a non-descript building at 15 Beach Street, which has an alcove that is occupied by the bust of Williams Shakespeare.

Not much is known about it. There is nothing on the bust or the building the provides any information. The building appears to be an apartment, today. There is more ornamentation than usual as there are pillasters at points - was this a small theater in the past? I found a reference on Flickr that collaborates with me that the bust is of the bard.

The location is between two Asian restaurants. It is one block to the east of Washington Street, and one block north of Kneeland Street. The area is dark and somewhat dingy, but it is fine during the day as there is plenty of walking traffic.
