Left to right, Wagon pulling Salt Marsh Hay, light house Winter Island Salem Ma, Boston Common Washington Monument inside the front gate, still there today, Getting Salt March Hay from was Danvers river which has sea water also, 1/4 mile from the sea . This river is very small now, these shots were taken from my wife's great Grandfather and his wife. It was there both hobby in 1898, for some years. This is a album with prints from this year only. In this river when the moon is open and high tide the sea would come into this river. Now, you can not cut any of this hay, it is the best for gardens we have to buy it.

    "The colossal equestrian bronze statue of George Washington, in the Public Garden, at the Arlington Street entrance opposite Commonwealth Avenue, is the largest and one of the most impressive works of sculpture in Boston.

    The funds for this statue were raised by subscription (donations), and by a great fair in 1859. The movement began in the spring of that year, and the first substantial contribution to the fund was from the receipts of an oration by Robert C. Winthrop, given at the Music Hall (today's Orpheum Theatre). The great fair for its benefit was held in November. The city appropriated $10,000; and $5,000 of the surplus of the Edward Everett statue fund, given after the completion of that work, had brought the fund up to the required amount.
