Photo Challenge #435

Last week’s Photo Challenge was one of those I’m-sure-I’ve-seen-this-somewhere-before images. (Click here to see.)

Nearly every Westporter has been to PJ Romano Field (or, for those of an earlier vintage, Doubleday Field).

You may have gone to play, or watch, a football or lacrosse (or, years ago, soccer) game there. You may have run on the track. You may have had gym class there, at Saugatuck or Kings Highway Elementary School (or, before that, Bedford Middle or Junior High School).

Once upon a time, the at the northeast corner of the field was used for events: meetings, cookouts and the like.

Then it became a Westport Police Athletic League storage facility. For the last few years, it’s been unused.

The PAL hopes to rebuild it, into a more functional and better used facility. (You can donate to the cause; just click here!)

Bob Grant, Clark Thiemann, Andrew Colabella and Pam Romano were the only readers who recognized the lines, decorative features (and chipped paint) of the PAL clubhouse. Well played!

Now on to this week’s Photo Challenge. If you know where in Westport you’d see this, click “Comments” below.
