I admit it:  from time to time I will watch an old episode of the great American sitcom “Cheers” which takes place in a bar in Boston’s Back Bay.  I am sometimes rewarded with an excellent “establishing shot” of Boston.  Above I have posted a screen-grab of one of the best:  looking West down Commonwealth Avenue in the Back Bay with a view of the city’s competing insurance towers, the Prudential and the John Hancock, circa 1984.
