JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

For this week's segment of my photos, a few photos of the Coast Guard Cutter Bear that stopped in Boston recently. Who knows where Johnny G will end up next.

I am always looking for photos of old Stoneham (Mass) apparatus, incidents or members for my personal collection if anyone can help. A digital scan is perfectly fine, I don't need an original as long as the scan is big enough to print out. I also can scan photos, slides and negatives and then give them back to you if that is easier. CLICK FOR EMAIL.





USCGC Bear WMEC-901, a 270' Medium Endurance Cutter visiting Boston recently. The cutter is based out of Portsmouth, Virginia.




Former Nantucket Lightship that is privately owned and available for rent for a variety of occassions. This is a different Nantucket than the LV-113 that is in East Boston and is a museum ship.
