As I walked, I noticed this clock tower and the memorial.
The memorial reads in part.
"On This Site Stood The Victory Plant Shipyard A Satellite Plant Of The Bethlehem Shipyard At Fore River. Here Thirty-Five Naval Destroyers Were Built Between 1918-1920."

The road that you drive on to get to Marina Bay is called Victory Road. I had never really thought about the name before, but now it makes sense.
That's all for Quincy history until tomorrow. But for now, how about something from my present? Well, recent past if you want to get technical.
I just finished my scarf! My first knitting project! Thank you Amisha for the casting off instructions. Now for my next project, I'm thinking of a pair of socks or a sweater...
