3) Salada Tea Doors

The days of the tea trade in the USA ended with a bang in Boston, but that does not mean that they can’t be depicted artfully. On the huge bronze doors of the old Salada Tea Company building is a frieze of sorts, designed by American artist Henry Wilson and depicting the history of the Ceylon tea trade up until the point where Salada entered the market. The doors are so huge that they weigh over two tons, standing at an imposing 12 feet tall. Just seeing the building is impressive, and these incredible doors are a sight to behold. Located in Back Bay, Boston, the entire area is great to visit, with the rows of Victorian brownstone houses another interesting historical sight.
