Today volunteers disassembled a Boston Marathon memorial in Copley Square so it can be cleaned and stored in the city archives.


Many delicate items, like posters and letters, were already removed to prevent deterioration. The memorial will soon be available to view at the archives, located at 201 Rivermoor Street in West Roxbury.


Here is a look at the makeshift memorial, which has steadily grown since the April 15 terror attack.
