Wakefield Common and Lake Quannapowitt, circa mid-1940s

Title:
  • Wakefield Common and Lake Quannapowitt, circa mid-1940s
Description:
  • "The lower common, near the bandstand, has always attracted scores of people who enjoy the shores of Lake Quannpowitt. While still a source of pleasure for recreational and leisurely pursuits, the common at one time was the site of High School baseball games, and attracted spectators to water carnivals and speedboat races. In this circa 1947 photo, note the trees, the benches and the docks." -- Text from calendar by Jayne M. D'Onofrio.
