Northcrest Drive looking towards Pioneer - 2004

Northcrest Drive looking towards Pioneer Avenue - 2004. The photos are quite similar, but note the guardrail on Pioneer Avenue. In the older photo there are the old log rails with the interconnecting steel wires. I wouldn't have wanted to rely on the old fashioned rails to keep me from tumbling down the hill. Most of the old type guardrails have been removed from the Brookline area, but you can still find them in remote corners.
