Deering Row

The sun was kind this morning to this row of buildings on Deering Street. I know one thing for sure. There is an awful lot of brick in this city. The building on the far left is Harold T. Andrews, American Legion Post #17. My Dad was the Post Commander here for many years and would often regale us with stories surrounding the Post, its history and the many characters within its walls. A walk in the sun, on a November morning, on a brick-lined street is a pretty good thing. Now, for a cup of java!

  8. Nice shot! And I like your story:)

    The one thing that strikes me when I go back to New England is all the brick. Pretty, and it gives a feeling of warmth, which is good in NE weather.
