It's been Labor Day weekend on the river roads for decades now
Leslie Jones photographed a couple of MDC cops looking at the aftermath of truck vs. underpass on Memorial Drive at the Harvard Bridge on Jan. 18, 1944:
20 ton truck doesn't clear 9 ft. underpass.
The photo, by the way, is part of the BPL's huge collection of Jones photos of traffic accidents. It's a must see for fans of crushed cars, cabs, trucks and buses from the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s that are flipped over, wrapped around trees, in the water and scattered in little pieces, sometimes with occupants still in them.
