Last of the lost footage or Route 9

November 7th, 2007

As I’ve mentioned these stills were taken from a video camera in a moving car and these screen shots were, believe it or not, the best I could get from this tape.  The reason I’m posting these is because I’ve had a few requests from people who would like to see them and even through the blurriness, I found these to evoke crystal clear images in my head of how these places really looked, it’s funny how  the brain works with what it gets. So hopefully someone can also get some enjoyment from these shots. 

Classic dome of Jordan Marsh

The Jordan Marsh Car Care Center

Caldor (and CVS to the far right)

This one I think is the worst picture but I would have totally forgot about the Mr. Donut on route 9 if I hadn’t seen this.

The hotel that was where Trader Joe’s is now.

 Also, even though it’s not Framingham I could’t resist posting some of Natick. 
Sears with it’s multiple flags

Side entrance of the mall next to Anderson-Little

Of course the legendary York’s Steak house.

Star Market where the Container Store is now.

Thats it really for Route 9 footage.  I owe you Mitch : )

Some more footage from the video shot from the (moving) car given to me by Mitch Cohen.

Herbie’s was an ice cream shop where Cafe Bagel (or fresh bagel) is now in Framingham Center. ivermectin, liver damage
I loved going here as a kid after ballet lessons at the dancing arts center, which was right around the corner. As a teenager, my friend worked here, my friends and I would visit and wait for her to get off work. I don’t know how they went out of business, they were always pretty busy from what I remember. a que hora se toma la ivermectina en gotas
Anyway, I just thought I’d share some more lost footage of Framingham that Mitch so generously allowed me to use.

He’s still alive!

A while back someone gave me some video footage of a ride down route 9 which featured a blurry shot of Mister Donut.
 I haven’t seen or heard from Mister Donut since I last saw him in Framingham but a few days ago I was in in New York and came across thiscup left in a potted plant:

Who knew he was still around.  Nice to see he’s kept the hat and bowtie too!  I know this post isn’t exactly Framingham based but I thought any other former fans of Mister Donut might be interested to know he’s alive and living in Manhattan now.
