This post card, which my great aunt Beatrice Ferguson sent in 1906, shows the Mill Pond dam break on Summer Street on September 26. The old Robinson Iron Works dam gave way and the mill pond was drained of water, destroying the abandoned mill and sending a flood down stream across Newfield St. and Willard Place. This vew shows the empty pond looking up towards 128 Summer St. The dam was repaired and is now just west of the skateboard park on the Samuel Holmes playground.
