Lynn Blogs – A Rock of Plovers

  Wishing (If I Had a Photograph of You) is a song that comes to mind, even if it’s by a flock of a different bird. Also, if your song is published with a parenthetic title longer than the proper one, perhaps you ought to rethink it. Good song, though. Anyway, follow the link to…

Signs of Lynn – Au Nid du Doré

  I caught a fish sign <–this big–> somewhere in Lynn, but I’ll let you tell me. I believe Au Nid du Doré means Golden Nest, which explains why it’s a green glowing fish. I think it looks angry.     Previous Signs of Lynn Ghost of the Empire John’s Upholstering Mino’s Capitol Diner Brickyard…

Signs of Lynn – Ghost of the Empire

  “Ghost sign is a term for old hand-painted advertising signage that has been preserved on a building for an extended period of time. The signage may be kept for its nostalgic appeal, or simply indifference by the owner.” – Wikipedia   Do you know where it was? Did you go there? Do you know…

Photos – A Night To Fight Cancer III from 9/17/11

  The third edition of A Night To Fight Cancer was held at the Franco American Hall on Western Avenue, a somewhat cozier in size venue than St. Michael’s Hall. Bad Rabbits headlined, playing along with Cody B. Ware, The Offseason, Ross Livermore Band, and Brown Chicken Brown Cow. It was a little tough to…

Signs of Lynn – Capitol Diner

It was originally named the Miss Lynn before Buddy Fennell’s uncle George…

Lynn Blogs – Because We’ve Come So Far

Living in Lynn thinks a little public shaming is in order, at least for one particular property owner in DTL who seems to keep up with the little traffic island lawn baring their sign, but not with their actual properties surrounding it. No doubt, Central Square has come a long way and the public art…

Signs of Lynn – Brickyard

The Commuter Rail passes over Blossom Street. If anyone wants to know what the deal is with The Brickyard, the Lynn Museum sells a book called “The Brickyard: The Life Death, and Legend of an Urban Neighborhood” by Kathryn Grover. Does anyone know how the overpass got its sign?   Previous Signs of Lynn Roberts…
