JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

This week's photos for my trip to the Coast Guard Heritage Museum in Barnstable, Mass. The museum is closed for the season until the spring, but if you are in the area when they re-open, I highly recommend stopping in. If you want to see more of the photos I took, I posted them to my Facebook Photography page at CLICK FOR 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.
