For our "Throwback Thursday" Photo of the Day, we feature an image of old JP. Here's famous Boston photographer Leslie Jones capturing a moment with a cat in Franklin Park in November 1928.


This photo is part of the Boston Public Library's cache of historical photos, many of them by Jones. This came from the "Animals: Dogs and Cats" album.

Another place to look for historical photos of JP is the Historical Society's photo archive. It's a real neighborhood treasure. Please visit it!

Each weekday we post a random image from around the neighborhood.

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":
