Pumping Station



Does anyone know what this public building, located on the corner of Furnace Brook Parkway and Quarry Street, is used for?

I do know it needed to be pumped out from the recent 3-day storm we had. If you enlarge it you can just make out the edges of a park bench located near the stairs. I like the design and the stone material used to make this structure. The roof looks like it was replaced recently.

I know that it is used for storage of equipment for the field. I have been told that it was part of a WPA project, well before our time of course.

Maybe Noah used it as a prototype for the ark.

In the end, I always knew that it would be West Quincy that God attempted to drown out.

I think the pumping station, broken at the moment from last week's rain, is at the other end of the block at Joyce and Connell Sts.
