It’s been a while since I last wrote about Franklin Park in Boston, but the weather has been so cold and miserable that I haven’t had any chance to wander in the Park and find new things to rant about. So I thought I’d share a few old photographs I found in my online meanderings of winter views from Franklin Park’s past. All the joys of winter fun in the Park without leaving the warmth of your computer.
First up I have two photos from 1923 of a toboggan run on the slopes of Schoolmaster Hill. Today there is a golf tee-off area (do those have names?) here so it looks a little different, but not much. My neighbor said she remembers doing this as a kid, so I guess they had these until the late-70s or early-80s.
Next I found this cool shot from atop Rock Milton (or is it Rock Morton?) looking down at the Carriage Bridge of Scarborough Pond.
I hope you’ve enjoyed these winter views, and I promise I’ll get back to original rants as soon as spring arrives.
