from 1920. The third is from the Draper periodical, Cotton Chats, January 1946.
The fourth is from a postcard, probably taken in the 1950s; certainly no earlier than
the mid-40s because the ice house is gone and replaced with the Tom West
house. The fifth was taken in the 1959 or 1960.. The photo with the geese was
taken in June 2003. The one at the bottom was taken in 2007, after a boat ramp
was constructed and a picnic table was placed there. The wooden posts were
salvaged from the town park flag pole. You can find much more about the pond,
including attendance numbers for bathers, in the Park Department history site.
The pond is open!!! Now and Then at the Lower End of the Pond
