The Grid: Photos of Everett as it grew up

This summer, we have been detailing the history of the city’s downtown streets in our series, “The Grid.” Next week, we’ll conclude that series. First, though, we wanted to share some of our favorite snapshots of early Everett, from its childhood onward, along with some modern-day photos for comparison. Click here for the gallery. Enjoy!

Cast your vote!

In June, we challenged our readers to come up with a mnemonic device to remember the order of Everett’s downtown streets: Broadway, Lombard, Oakes, Rockefeller, Wetmore, Colby, Hoyt, Rucker and Grand. More than 100 of you sent in a total of roughly 190 ideas. Here are our favorites. Vote for your top pick below by the end of the day Thursday, and we’ll announce the winner next Monday. The one that gets the most votes wins a prize.
