I don't know the date but the picture was taken on the south side of Depot Square, Hamilton, looking towards Wenham and I believe the railroad ties are being replaced. The building is the former Village Mower Shop run by Mr. Flynn.

The picture looks fairly modern...the trucks, the clothing and the hairsyles. Althought I can't tell for sure, I think I see Don Costin standing by the open door to the building. I'll guess this is around 1970.

Mr Luxton is right, and Mr Flynn was affectionately known as Bert.
