East Boston Tunnel plaque

Came across this picture today:

The uploader gave no description, and the geographic locator on flickr says Broadway station which is clearly not correct. Anyone who where this is actually located?

Last I saw it, it was state st outbound, on the Govt. Center end of the platform. Right where you walked onto the platform. I believe they put it back in roughly the same place after all the work was done.

This.

However, I don't think they took it out during the restoration. I think they sort of framed it with the wall tiles, and it is set back into the wall. But it should be right where it was.

If you want a more current picture, I'll get one for you today while I'm in town.

There was another similar plaque commemorating the Washington Street Tunnel, IIRC on the south end of the northbound Orange Line platform at State. Not sure if that one is still there.

Only if you happen to be passing through State anyway - I'll get pictures myself when I'm next on the T.
