There are also homes belonging to some of the 2nd tier of the upper class, those who served the very rich. doctors, dentist, ship builders and artisans. New Bedford was the home port of the Whaling ship, Acushnet, of Moby Dick fame. Also the textile mill where pictures of child laborers were taken that began the process of minimum age laws for workers.
The following is a pictoral story of some of the architecture of New Bedford, Ma. that caught my eye during a mid week ride. Before the surprise came, that is.
The return trip took me back by the waterfront. I am never disappointed by the sights in that area.
Waiting to cross the bridge
Marin waiting patiently for the bridge to close.
Things began to change very rapidly on the return ride. A few snow flakes here and there. Out of no where...squals.. heavy snow making the ride very interesting, in a control kind of way.
The snow got very heavy very quickly.
It was actually pretty neat to ride in this.
Here I encountered a couple of guys walking and mentioned they were kind of nutty walking in this stuff.
Soon enought though, I was back at Evergreen St. Home again.
