Lechmere

The T (Boston’s subway system) has upgraded most of the stations, but I recently discovered that this one at the far end of the Green Line still looks like it has for decades. Kind of a cool look….I’d leave it, but hey that’s me.

    Love it! Is that the line that takes you up to BU? Or, am I turned around? If so, I used to jump on it to see BU Baseball while I was working up there. Wonderful photos, sir!

      Thank you…You’re memory is correct, but the Lechmere stop is actually over in Cambridge. I’ve been riding the T all my life and this is the first time I’ve encountered it. Cheers!

    Sometime in the late 1970’s, fan favorite Bill Lee of the Red Sox was traded for the unknown Stan Papi of the Montreal Expos. Graffiti soon appeared in the Lechmere and Museum of Science MBTA stations. In large white letters it read “Who is Stan Papi ?”. There was still a faded graffiti mark on the concrete underpass of the MBTA line on Charlestown Ave a couple of years ago.

      Thank you, Maciek…It is a bit odd here. In the city center, we run the trams underground like a subway. The same with the subway trains (aka Metro, Tube). They all get referred to as subway or “The T”. But it is rather simple in practice…as long as there is no snow. Cheers!

    Oh, I do hope they leave that one be … once it’s gone it’s gone and that would be so sad. Progress is important but so is some preservation.

      They’ve modernized it (new turnstiles) but perhaps this could be kept this way to show people how it once was at all the stops. Of course the stations in Boston Common have not changed much either.
