These are a couple of pictures I took in Annapolis, Maryland a few years ago. Annapolis is the state capitol, also home of the US Naval Academy, and a beautiful place. These pictures are from the historic section. I think the street is either East Street, or just off East Street, I can't remember. If you go to the end and look to the left, you'll be looking directly at the State House.
The posts on the side mark off a small, tree shaded, brick paved public area with a couple of benches for people to sit. The picture drawn on the side of a building is at one end of that public area.
Annapolis is maybe 30 miles from Baltimore (or maybe not), and not too far at all from Washington, DC - so it's in the midst of a large metropolitan area. Its a very pretty place, especially when you finally figure your way around. Somehow, I always managed to find a parking space.
