This Is Framingham
Life in the ‘ham

Random flashbacks

September 21st, 2012

Since someone commented about nostalgia in the last post I figured I’d post some random old newspaper clippings and such that I found going through some archives at the History Center.  Some I didn’t bother scanning because I didn’t think I’d use them for the blog, just for personal records, so please excuse the quality of some of these images.

Capt’n Bob was where “Angry Ham’s” is now.

I think most people remember Eb’s.  I’ll always remember spending my 21st birthday there.

I vaguely remember the Whatnot Candy Kitchen

If anyone got their hair cut by this guy, PLEASE check in and tell me what “the master of hair” was like.

The old 400 Club

I love this poster.

Sportswear Store/Fabric Place

Getting ready for the Holiday season:

I’m still planning on co-writing a  book on Shopper’s World so if anyone has any old photos please consider sharing them.


  1. How old is that picture of Sportswear Store? Thinking it is older than you are….

  2. Wow, some great pics in there! The 400 Club was such a nice looking place back when Sad Plaza was in full swing. And Capt’n Bob’s was one of my regular stops.

    Hope the rumors of you ending the blog are not true. This site is a treasure Michele!

  4. Love the Natick Mall stuff. It was inseparable from the old Shoppers World, even before “Flutie Pass” was paved.
