THE OLD WHARF, BOSTON – GARRY ARMSTRONG

BLACK & WHITE SUNDAY: TRACES OF THE PAST Y2-06

The wharf dates to the days before the American Revolution. Parts of it date as far back as mid 1600s. You can easily see how old the wharf is and the various ages of buildings from the 1700s to now.

The Beaver – a transport ship from Colonial days in Boston with modern Boston behind it.

Not sure how old the bridge is, but probably from the 1800s. It has been kept in very good shape.

    • Thank YOU, Paula. We’re both okay now that the chilly, rainy weather has vamoosed. Now come complaints (not from me) about heat and humidity.

    • Marilyn got to sleep in this morning. I’ve had early morning stuff every day for a while. I wanted to NOT get up this morning. Also, Garry’s been taking so many MORE pictures than i have, I have tons of his stuff to show off.

      We are, I must warn you, running out of “old places” around here. Of course, it’s a matter of “defining” old, but old buildings … well … if we were in Boston, it would be easier, but out here, they are getting a bit thin on the ground. Garry did some nice work in Boston. Figured it was HIS turn this week 🙂

  3. Is the “No Name” restaurant still there? Best seafood I’d ever had.

  5. Black and white is perfect for that Garry. It may be me, but I find it puts one in a different time frame.
