JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

This week's photos for my section are from Battleship Cove in Fall River. These photos are of the ships together, the PT Boat exhibit and of Ned's Point lighthouse in Mattappoisett. If you want to see more of the photos I took, I created an album on my photography page. It is on Facebook, but you don't need an account to see the photos. CLICK FOR THE MULTI-SHIP PHOTO ALBUM and CLICK FOR THE PT BOAT PHOTO ALBUM. 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.
