JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

My mom grew up in Boston and always loved seeing photos of the city. For my photo this week, I'm posted a shot of the skyline I took at night last year. She really liked this shot, as she always thought there was something special about Boston lit up at night. Thank you again for all the support and kind emails and messages I have received. 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.
