Boston Harbor Islands Photos, Stories
September 20, 2011
Quincy Ledger: Burleigh “Bud” Roberts of Weymouth proudly showed his photographs from 1942-1949 when he attended the Farm and Trade School on Thompson Island.
“A lot of people don’t know about this and it was an excellent school,” he said.
Craig Paton of Quincy carefully selected photos he and his stepson, Michael Bessette, snapped in 2007 on their kayaking ventures out to Peddocks Island. “We took up kayaking as a way to get to the islands for free,” Paton said. “There is so much history out there.”
And plenty of fish too, said Barry Hass of Hull, with photos of a few he had caught.
