JUNE IS SQUARE – ROOF 17 – Marilyn Armstrong

It’s that time of year again and squares are back! 

Roofs along the trolley tracks in Brookline


Well, the theme is ROOFS (or rooves if you prefer). Your roof can be;

A – any type, any condition, any size, and in any location.
B – it could be a shot across rooftops, of one roof like today or even a macro
C – you might prefer to spend some time under the eaves and in the attic, or enjoy the view from above as Brian has already done today.

See you tomorrow!

    1. Squirrel, do you adhere to the signs — ‘Slow down – Deaf Child Here’ — “Slow down — slow children here”

      “Slow down — Darwin contestants walking on street blindfolded”

      Happy Father’s Day, Squirrel!! Best to all the little Squirrels…

    1. Our trams don’t run on electric rails. The actually have tall connectors that run UP to the wires above. The rails aren’t electric because these are streets commonly used by many pedestrians, so they can’t hide the wires and they aren’t utility wires. They are strictly for trams.

      MANY (probably most) cities in the U.S. bury their wires. Why WE don’t is anyone’s guess but not doing it results in hundreds of thousands of power outages after every storm. It’s really stupid.

        1. In Boston, it’s because the city is so old. Narrow lanes, cobblestones, old building. Burying wires is difficult there. On the other hand, why they don’t buy them in our area makes NO sense. There is plenty of room. But we have a lot of upkeep problem in this country. We haven’t done much about it since the 1950s and in many places, since the 1850s. There’s a lot of old falling-down bridges, unsafe roads, wires everywhere. We spend a lot of money on bribing politicians. No funds left for infrastructure.


          1. Don’t think you’re the only country with infrastructure issues these days. Money isn’t spent wisely 😑 but the wire issues surely are the responsibility of the utility companies not government? Odd they don’t invest to save in long term – although having said that one of our biggest water company is giving profits to shareholders rather than reinvesting in company. 😕
