Old Donkey - Newly Renovated

Image
Old Donkey - Newly Renovated
Newburyport, Massachusetts

This concrete donkey and cart was given to my grandmother in 1959. She always kept beautiful plantings in it's cart. Many generations of our family's children have sat upon this sculpture to pose for photos. "Donkey," as he us known to us, now resides in my sister's backyard. Seated here is her granddaughter Shea.

Remond Park
Salem, Massachusetts

Remond Park is a remnant of the old Salem - Beverly Bridge. The new bridge (circa 1996) and the MBTA commuter rail bridge is in the background. The park was named for two prominent siblings and Salem residents who were abolitionists in the 19th century.

Baby Carriages

Image
Presented before you is a compilation of baby carriage photos I could find in my family archives. 

The first one on the left seems to be the fanciest of carriages. It's a photo of my mother when she lived in Houlton, Maine in 1924. Look the the carriage is made of wicker! the suspension and wheels are very ornate.
The next photo shows my sister in a stroller with yours truly in control. This was a family vacation and the other two children are our cousins. 
The third photo is of me in that very same stroller. I had quite a set of toys tied right in front of me to keep me occupied.

Finally, the lower right photo is of my father all bundled up in what is perhaps a stroller/sleigh. The photo was dated 1918, Rowley, Massachusetts.

Take a stroll with your baby carriage over to Sepia Saturday for more great posts! Just click here.

Lions Everywhere in Copley Square

Image
Yes, lions can be found everywhere in Copley Square. The lions below were once found in front of the former Hotel Kensington in Boston, They seem to be the perfect guards as guests checked in for a stay. From the looks of the top photo it must have been a swanky place as one woman leaving the hotel is dressed in a fur coat. In the distance is the Old South Church with it's ornate tower.



Lions seem to be the theme around Copley Square as there are two huge lions, carved by St. Gaudens, inside the public library just across the street from the Kensington. These lions guard Boston's memorial to Civil War casualties.

The Hotel Kensington is no longer there. It was demolished and replaced with modern architecture. The new building's nickname is the Darth Vader building after it's color and shape. Incidentally the photos of the old location of the lions are where the first bomb went off during the 2013 Boston Marathon.

As you can see these lions had to endure some harsh Bost…
