Beautiful photo

Put it in black and white and you couldn't tell the century.

(Okay, okay, you could by the ivy ...)

The ugly bridge places it

By on

The ugly bridge places it squarely in the now. Our predecessors wouldn't have built such an ugly, purely utilitarian POS.

Thrifty old Yankees would build utilitarian

By on

Not all structures have to be edifices. I'm sure the old Yankees would have been happy to have a utilitarian bridge that safely got them to market and church without frills.

Tehy certainly wouldn't break the bank for a monument. That is a mill pond, after all.

Depends What You Mean By "Predecessors"

By on

Since this is only the third century in which photography has been extant (with the total of years being less than 200) I'd say John A Keith is quite correct. Having grown up less than a half-mile from that spot on the river, and having seen that particular view from a few childhood explorations UNDER that bridge, I can tell you it looks almost exactly the same as it did in the 1960's.


P.S. The Neponset looks as though it smells the same, too.

When I think of that area I think of the smell from Walter Baker's Chocolate that was made in a factory in the immediate area. Great aroma!
