Wakefield rattan factories on Water Street

Wakefield, MA : The authors,




"No longer standing are the historic buildings that the founder of our town used for many years as rattan factories. The open space that once had cows roaming in the foreground now remains somewhat open in the form of two baseball fields and a small playground. The brook remains and runs alongside the park and crosses under Water Street under a small bridge. It was difficult to get the same vantage point. The distinct rooftop of Lincoln School in the distant top right let me know I was photographing in the right direction." - caption provided by Annette Dupon, contest winner.;Winner of photo contest, Second Place, Adult category.
