James Higgins created a photographic essay on the daily work of City Hall today. His images of the public employees and officials who are responsible for the workings of local government are juxtaposed with facsimiles of historic documents from the attic of City Hall. As Historic Board Administrator Diana Prideaux-Brune says, "It is important to realize that we are making history right now." One panel includes views of the exterior and interior of City Hall along with information about the building.
