    These houses on Inman Street
    were built 100 years ago.The
    porch roofs on the one in the
    foreground were changed from
    shed style to peaked a few
    years ago. The stairway at the
    bottom right isn't in the early
    view because the house there
    was built later.

    The Draper Company also built
    houses ca. 1913 on Jones
    Road, Lower Jones Road,
    Northrop Street, Freedom Street
    and Maple Street.

    Here's another nearby event for the month - the Boston
    Marathon in Natick, a couple of hours before its tragic
    ending. Click here for more scenes from Natick. Most of you
    will recognize the Hoyts in the picture on the left. I had my
    camera ready because runners in front of them were letting
    everyone know that they'd be coming by in a few seconds.

    Sorry to say these will be the last pictures from Terry Studer. She'll
    be moving out of the area in a few days. Hope the move goes well,
    Terry. Thanks for the great photos you've sent during the past year.
