Great day to go to the beach. Let's warm by the Firehouse ashes.

Boston winter of 1923. Severe storms and heavy snow led many to revert to horse-drawn conveyances. Here, Homer Johnson, left, drives a Boston Globe reporter to the beach on March 21, 1923. It was the day after fire destroyed several buildings, including the new beach fire station. The beach road was closed to automobile traffic for the first three months of this year.
