JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

This week's photos for my section are from Rockport, Mass. My son is home on leave for vacation and we are doing day trips to various places. These were taken at the begining of the week. 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.
