For our Photo of the Day on Thursdays, I highlight an image of old JP. This one comes from the JP Historical Society’s photo archives, courtesy of Will and Sharlene Cochrane. Here’s the caption from the archives:
Construction of the Southwest Corridor rail lines and park in Jamaica Plain in the early 1980s. This view is looking from Everett St. towards Jamaica Plain High School. A catastrophic rain created this flood, just before the main drainage hookup was completed.
The Historical Society’s photo archive is a neighborhood treasure. Please visit it!
If you have a photo that screams (or even whispers) “Jamaica Plain,” here are three ways to nominate it as our “Photo of the Day”:
- Email me at chris@jamaicaplainnews
- Tag a picture on Twitter with @02130News
- Put your photo in the Jamaica Plain News photo pool on Flickr
