Historical Photo Showed New Rail Going In

The answer to the most recent "Then and Now" historical photo, which was taken more than 30 years ago.

The latest is looking south on the railroad tracks at the Hamilton and Wenham town line where is today.

The picture was taken in 1979 when new welded rail was installed on the tracks to Ipswich. About 10 years ago a new station platform was also built at this location.

Thomas S. Luxton answered correctly for the second time in a row. Congratulations Tom!

Both the “old” photo and the “new” photo are attached to this story.

There's a new historical photo posted on Tuesdays. Check Hamilton-Wenham Patch next Tuesday for the latest one.

Special thanks to Arthur "Butch" Crosbie and the Hamilton Historical Society and the for providing the photos we'll use for the feature in the coming weeks. This week’s photo came from Wenham Museum.

Plus, if you have a picture that was taken somewhere it Hamilton and Wenham more than 50 years ago that you want to submit for use in Then and Now, e-mail it to Editor Bobby Gates at robertg@patch.com or contact him to arrange pickup so that it can be electronically scanned for use on the website.
