In Search of Cobblestone Streets

After my less than stellar sunrise trip to the beach (get it???) I drove over to Lowell, Massachusetts, the former home of the Lowell Lock Monsters, to wander around their rather depressed down town area in search of Cobblestone streets. I found two off of Market Street. I took pics of other things too though, so don’t worry.

I tried to keep the homeless guy out of the shot. I failed miserably.

I took a handful of shots outside of the Trolley Museum. I was there to get a shot of the clock tower across the street (city hall?) but I got a few train-related pics while I was there.

That’s city hall, isn’t it? Pretty sure it is.

Pretty sure I’ve eaten at Cobblestones before. I think it was good enough to live up to it’s reputation, but what is the building with the columns?

Mill buildings. One of Lowell’s other main attractions, along with canals and cobblestone streets and economic depression and (at one point in the past) crack cocaine.

And one final shot of the sun.

There are a lot more things to see in Lowell, even just in the downtown area. I’ll go back. Next time I will try to focus on the river more, and maybe some bridges.
