The Black and White Down And Out Blues

R0330051-EditsmallThis man with the long white beard is not very old. We saw him this morning bent over carrying what appeared to be all his belongings in a sack on his back. A handsome man who, for whatever reason, is now homeless in Boston wearing a dirty tea shirt with an American flag on it.

Old Bricks/New Bricks…The City Of Lowell


Lowell, Massachusetts is an old industrial city that has been helped by the passion and foresight of Paul Tsongas, a former US Senator who got substantial federal funding to transform the city’s old mill district into a national park honoring America’s industrial heritage.

As a Massachusetts native I have always had an image of Lowell as a down and out old city. That’s not the case today. It’s a place well worth a visit.
