Work. Progress.

Here’s a quick portrait from a Boston Herald assignment yesterday. I was sent to Dorchester to get a photo of Lewis Finfer, whose father helped build a wall down by the Neponset River near the Milton-Dorchester border as part of the Works Progress Administration of the Great Depression.

Well, with this recession and job loss continuing, you get the idea… Lew is headed to Washington next week to talk jobs with President Obama.

12.12.2009 — BOSTON — Massachusetts Communities Action Network director Lew Finfer's father worked on the wall along Medway and Ventura Streets in Dorchester as part of a Work Progress Administration project from 1939 to 1940. Finfer will be meeting with President Barack Obama next week to discuss the potential for another WPA-like program, among other solutions, to spur job creation.
