Vintage Maps: New Bedford, Massachusetts Postcards
I Google mapped the Philadelphia address--a house in a long string of row homes--and it is the only one no longer standing. Just a "RIP" spray painted on the exposed wall of the adjacent house.
the town's really interesting history.
bath house at Fort Phoenix that is no longer there. Oh if my dad knew what I did with my high school friends at that beach at night, he probably would ground me from the grave.
Purchase Street business district, New Bedford, circa 1920s. This is where I spent most of my youth watching boys skateboard and having chow mein sandwiches from Bamboo Garden with my dad. The Waldorf Linens building is no longer there and that large building with the green roof is now a Citizens Bank. The red brick building now houses one of my favorite New Bedford restaurants, No Problemo.
current view reveals that not much has changed.
