First day of School at the Powder House Community school.

How would you describe Somerville in the 1980s?

I thought it was the best place.

How would you describe Somerville today?

Trendy. Especially the Davis Sq. area. It has grown into a hot spot. It is amazing how different it all is.

How has Somerville changed?

It has. With the T and all the colleges in the area, it has grown. Personally, I don't know for better or worse.

I can't believe the McDonald is not the big place it use to be. That place was a childhood memory as well as many of the old stores that were in Davis Square. I am so glad to see that these tiles are still around today. I remember thinking how cool I was to have my art work inside the train station....29 years!
