e congregation rose and faced the choir during the singing. At the time of its erection the entrance doors were near its corners, and a broad platform with steps descending toward Salem street extended entirely across its front. These were, in 1854, removed, as also the slightly elevated alcove within, between the entries, that contained the singing seats.
