Leslie Jones photographed a worker changing a lock at the Brink's warehouse in the North End following the $2.7-million robbery on Jan. 17, 1950.

The warehouse still stands today, as a parking garage at 600 Commercial St.

Kat G. says she was pretty surprised to see graffiti on an inbound train this evening at Walpole.
Very hard to hit an MBCR train. Guaranteed it will be buffed by tonight.
