Lars Anderson Auto Museum

My son doesn't have school this week and we decided to drop by the Lars Anderson Auto Museum. It's about a half mile from our house and it houses "America's oldest car collection." He hadn't seen the new Porsche and BMW display which features a Porsche speedsters, 959s, 930 turbo and a 956, plus a BMW M1. The 956 was my son's favorite car.

The Anderson's Stable

If you're in Boston, it's worth a visit. It was built in 1888 as a stable, but began to house horseless carriages starting with the purchase of an 1899 Winton Runabout. When Isabel Anderson passed away in 1948 she bequeathed her entire Brookline estate, including the mansion, Carriage House and land to the Town of Brookline. Fourteen of their cars remain, including two electric cars built in the 1920s.

I got the picture with grass off of the web, still snow on the ground in Boston! That's the stable, the mansion burned to the ground years ago.
