I Live in Nashville,Tn now. I remember sitting on the steps of city Hall waiting for the bus to pick me up from school. I thought the inside was a castle. THe marble was beautiful. Haven't been downtown when i come back to Worcester!! Its to confusing now!! Thanks for the pictures.
Before we had internet dating, we had the phone banks at City Hall. In the 60's, you could call the pay phones at City Hall to meet members of the opposite sex. All the teenagers would hang out there, and if a boy called, the person who answered the phone would hand it to the closest girl -- if a girl called, the phone would be handed to a boy. It's hard to believe in today's world, but we made a lot of good friends this way.

I was born and brought up in worcester. I remember well standing in front of city hall while waiting for the bus, coldest place in the winter. I certainly miss those days.
