Along with the many memorials created by the City of Boston in 1930 on Boston’s 300th Anniversary, it is assumed that the connection between the two Bostons was commemorated by erecting the the Coat of Arms of Boston, Lincolnshire, England above the Ashburton Gate to the Massachusetts State House. (It would be appreciated if anyone could clarify this.)
