1908 view of Hosmer MountainNick K says," the street in the front is Bridge Street (easily recognizable by the houses and natural landscape) . Hosmer Mountain dominates the background. Bridge Street eventually runs into Pleasant Street. The curved road in the distance leading to the hill is part of Mountain Street." Or, as Paul Ashton questions, "upI don't know when the Hosmer reservoir was built but you can see the road cut up the side of the mountain. I wonder if it was for the reservoir or the mica mine or both at that time. "

Eclipse of the SunOn January 24, 1925, almost five thousand people gathered on Hosmer Mountain to witness a total eclipse of the sun. The photo shows the people leaving the site. Over a thousand people had come from Boston on two special trains. During the eclipse, the temperature dropped five degrees to a chilly two below zero. Mayor Hickey and Street Superintendent John Sullivan had the Street Department prepare Hosmer Mountain for the crowd. Police had also been called to duty but, it was reported, none were needed.
