Not Whitey Bulger reposts an 1873 report on a court hearing on whether a bath house at the pond could stay open despite complaints from residents of nearby estates that they just could not abide knowing men and boys there were swimming in the pond pantsless. The judge ruled against the burghers, citing the urinal case of Rudolph vs. St. George's vestry and especially the pigeon-shooting case of Rex vs. Moore.
