Wall respect

We headed up to Allston today for some festive Allston Christmas sightseeing. Saw the usual sights (see below), but also this enigmatic structure on Linden Street. Anybody know the meaning behind it?

Flooding in West Roxbury

So those flash-flood warnings around 9:30 a.m. were for real. Sean Woods photographed a woman trapped by floodwaters on Spring Street by the Shaw's parking lot. Boston firefighters rushed to the scene to rescue her.

State Police shut 128 at Rte. 9 due to flooding. And cars were trapped by flood waters on Great Plain Avenue and Weston Road in Wellesley. Ed Grzyb reports:

Good God, Lion!

About the only thing that could improve this coffee table would be a large leg lamp standing next to it.

Quincy Market in 1828 or 1829.Quincy Market a couple years after its opening.

Mass. Moments alerts us that today's the anniversary of the grand opening of Quincy Market, in 1826:

[O]nly two years earlier, Bostonians had derided Mayor Josiah Quincy's huge construction project — the largest public works project yet undertaken in the new nation — as "Quincy's Folly." ...

From the beginning, the mayor faced stiff resistance. Many opposed the plan because of longstanding concerns about government regulation of trade. Some insisted the project was too expensive. Others felt that such an ambitious engineering and architectural project was better left to private enterprise. A few landowners simply refused to sell their property to the city.

On Friday evening I went to Revere Beach with a friend of mine for some Kelly's. I hadn't been to the Wonderland T Stop in a very long time so I was kind of surprised that how quickly the pedestrian bridge went up.

Outside of the skateboarders totally loving the bridge and the stone work, I was kind of surprised how nice it actually is.
