"Attached is my photo from February of the old YMCA building, when Artichokes had the "Christmas Tree" decorated for Valentine's Day. I was happy that the renovations into Artichokes and condos didn't change the look of the front of the building much, as it is such a part of downtown Wakefield. I went in for dinner one night a few months ago, and opened the door half expecting to smell chlorine from the pool." - caption provided by Mary Anne Power, contest winner.;Winner of photo contest, Special Award for Creativity (Artistic Photo Enhancement), Adult category.

First photo is a reproduction of a 1910 picture postcard, looking west across Main Street over the Rockery. Second photo taken by Mary Anne Power, March 2010.
