That's the place.
I was intrigued as to why there was an old ships anchor protruding from the weeds on the northbound side of this road, a road known before 1953, as Route 31 in New Jersey.
So I stopped today on my way to the town that's it's in, that also happens to be the berth place of "Newman E. Drake", founder of Drakes Baking Company, cleared the brush and found this. Your new tag:
Wha a great find Frank...cool tag!
Too close, couldn't resist.
Damn. There goes another one off my list.
Sorry for the blurry shot, but I wasn't about to get run over trying for a better one for the likes of YFFs. Rush hour on the shoulder of 206:eek1
Resisting is futile
Good grab BB
USS Bunker Hill Memorial
Rt. 206 (formerly Rt. 31 ) Andover.
Neat tag and get!
Got GPS coordinates for the non-locals?
41' 02' 09.86 N
74' 45' 57.99 W
You didnt need to be a local though to figure it out.
Drake was born in Andover and Rt. 206 was formerly Rt. 31 before 1953. All Google'able!
Got to say, that's a really nice tag. At a lunchtime discussion last Sunday some were of the opinion that all the tags were done in NJ and there should be a 'reset'. I think there are plenty of tags out there, and still some gems to be found. Just my latecomer opinion.
Damn! You guys keep using my emergency tags
Have taken quite a few pix there for backup.......never had to use them
Think I even have pic with old Multi
The winter is the best time for that as the weeds are dead. Early in the spring someone plants flowers & etc. But then they just let it go:huh
no way..I still have a list of tags from when i played and I have yet to see any of them...

Sidebar - my grandfather went to high school in this building, graduating in 1931. The building is now a middle school.
Halsted middle school Newton. School was in session, so close access was not allowed.
"A 50 year old creepy man on a motorcycle is taking pictures at the door Mrs. Crabtree"
yea, better to take it from the curb
I can't feel my fingers!
Good grab, DockingPilot! I should have posted that the curb shot would be acceptable during school hours, but you figured it out on your own. Where to?
