Oh My 06880 — Photo Challenge #69

Most readers thought last week’s photo challenge — a stone-spangled wall — was either the old Town Hall on the Post Road (next to Restoration Hardware).

Most readers were wrong.

Only Roger Wolfe knew that Peter Barlow’s intriguing image showed the gatepost on Spicer Road at Beechwood Lane. (Spicer runs behind Five Guys and Dunkin Donuts, connecting Park Lane and Hillspoint Road.)

Peter says there were originally 2 stone gateposts on Spicer, next to a brook. In the 1970s, the driveway was overgrown with weeds and foliage. Through the end of the century, the gateposts deteriorated further. One disappeared; the bowl on the top of the other was broken.

Recently however, neighbors saved and restored as much as possible. The gatepost was relocated to the corner of Beechwood and Spicer, where it stands as an obelisk.  (To see the photo, and relive history, click here.)

Perhaps this week’s photo — by John Hartwell — will be easier.

Perhaps not.

Either way, give it your best shot. Click “Comments” below.

    Agree with Patricia and Julie that these are the stairs that lead from the Imperial Avenue parking lot to the Westport Women’s Club.
