A fire that started in a downtown basement around 7 p.m. on Nov. 9, 1872, quickly spread and destroyed 776 buildings.

And Tom Menino was there, making his last Halloween appearance on the Common as mayor. He moved slowly through a dense knot of people as parents brought their kids up to meet him. He greeted and posed with every one of them:
