Nice framing on trash on Day Street in Jamaica Plain

A concerned citizen filed a 311 report on this impromptu exhibit on Day Street in Jamaica Plain yesterday. Alas for folks intrigued by its statement on life in a pandemic, with its subtle reference to the Spanish Flu of a century ago, the city has marked this "Resolved: All Set," although one supposes you could now create an NFT linked to the image and make millions.
