Towers of Power



These transmission towers in the Neponset River Valley are located close by to ones that used to transmit one of Boston's top-40 radio stations WMEX aka wim-mex over the air waves. (See Al's comment.) You can see Boston skyline in the background and a State Street South building on the right.

ahh... wimmex , Arnie 'woo woo' Ginsburg. I can remember sitting in class at NQHS and every now and then when an announcement from the office was made you could hear the mic picking up the rock n roll. Wimmex has changed, school has changed and I guess although we don't like to admit it, we have changed too.

Nice capture of energy forms...nature, man, etc. A beauty.

The towers looks so fragile. Even the city looks fragile at this distance.

This city is anything but fragile, Brattcat. They don't call us the "Granite City" for nothing.

Sorry but your info is inaccurate. The towers in this photo are those of WMKI (formerly WEZE) 1260 AM located in Milton. This station is still very much on the air but these towers were never used by WMEX. The original WMEX towers were not far away. They were demolished in the mid 1980's. Nice picture though!
