Thats why people died young in the early 1900;s. I saw a story by a docter who said they put so much salt on the meat to preserve it. They had so much high blood presure and heart attacks,

Alas, many weeks ago (or is it months now...LOL) I posted a web site that had a great pic looking north up Central with a great view of the Strand's marquee sticking out. Alas I do not know where I put the website...LOL. In the meantime, here are some great views including one I'm glad I never saw as the Lady lay dying. http://www.pbase.com/jroy/strandlowell Click the thumbnail pics to enlarge

Here's a bunch of people http://cinematreasures.org/theater/4239/
sharing memories about The Strand where a fellow put the above link of Strand pics.

Beyond the Strand, bet most people haven't seen this view of the auditorium http://rocktour.net/directions/LowellMemorial...

Whoa...so true, so true! Reminds me to make a New Year's Resolution to clean/purge this place so my kids don't have to sit here trying to figure out "Now why did he keep this scrap of paper; my gawd this coupon for Fixodent expired in '07; yada yada...." I better make a map of the yard so they can dig up all the cans of quarters, halves, and dollars that are silver and leave a note not to just through them in one of those machines that charges you to convert coins to paper...LOL Of course if they keep giving us NO SS Colas and my supplemental health insurance keeps going up, I might use them for myself!

Tewksbury State Hospital was once known as the Tewksbury Insane Asylum. I was born and raised on Boylston St., next to Shedd Park, and frequented Tewksbury as a teenager, in the 1950s. The
Tewksbury kids would tell stories about the screams that came from the hospital buildings, especially at night, and of the warnings to beware of an occasional 'escapee'. We would sneak onto the grounds, after dark, trying to see what was going on, but we usually scared the crapola out of each other, or fled at the first sound of a rustling bush. It was definitely creepy.
I bet most people in there had Alztimers but we didnt know enough about at that time.I heard that poor people were put there also?
