Next Meeting is on 3 December 2015 @ 7:00PM

Yesterday, December 7, 1941—a date which will live in infamy—the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt 

8 December 1941

Never Forget!


December meeting will b held at the Charles River Museum of Industry

December's speaker will be Thomas Erb of the Electric Time Company, speaking on how they make Street Clocks. These devices are largely made right here in Massachusetts


Since we now are meeting at two different locations, depending on availability, here are directions to the two locations.  

Charles River Museum of Industry and Innovation

From I-95 exit 28 onto Rt. 20 east until you get to Moody Street.  Turn right and proceed across the Charles River bridge.  A block after crossing the Charles turn left at the light onto Pine Street.  Go a couple of blocks and turn left onto Cooper Street.  Go on Cooper Street (very carefully as the street is in bad condition) into the parking lot.  Use the footbridge across the river, turn right at the end of the footbridge to the CRMI entry door.

Waltham Library

The address of the Waltham Library is 735 Main St, about 2 blocks west of Moody St.  Turning onto Spring St. (to the right of the building) leads to the parking in back.  If the lot is full, there is a garage reached by continuing down Spring and making a right on Middle St.

Early V-8 Show in FitchburgIf you have come here to see the photos I took at this show my head is hung in shame.  Not until the following day did I realize that I had walked about the show taking photo after photo with NO MEMORY CARD in the camera.  For shame, for shame.  I sincerely apologize and hope you will forgive me and spend some time on our site anyway.  Now I have a reason to return to the show next year.  http://clubs.hemmings.com/earlyfordv8newengland/
