Cavanagh Stadium – Quincy MA

Description

WPA Bulletin, 1937: “Recently the Birch Street Playground, which was transformed by WPA from a gravel pit into an attractive athletic site, was dedicated by Mayor Burgin who turned over the “Keys of the Field” to the School Committee. North Quincy High School helped in the dedication by defeating Milton’s High School in a football contest, 21 to 7. This playground is to be used exclusively for track and football.”
