Flashback Friday

Northborough – With so much talk over the last month or so about the dangers of mosquitoes, it's interesting to see how generations before us handled the problem. In this photo, members of the Northborough ?Department of Public Works (circa 1915) are spraying the town's trees. As the book, Images of America – Northborough – (in which this photo appears), indicates, the dangers of long-term pesticide use were not yet known.
