Pfaffman Oval Quincy
Works Progress Administration (W.P.A.) labor conducted the following work at Merrymount Park in Quincy. WPA Bulletin:
All who have motored to the South Shore or Cape this summer have noted the WPA work on the Pfaffman Oval in Merrymount Park. Here a perfect football field and running track are being enclosed with a high brick wall. Reinforced concrete bleachers, dressing and storage rooms are being built. Below the field the city is gradually filling up a salt water marsh and will in a few years have reclaimed the entire area up to the curving South Shore Road.
