Unruly Assawompsett

"Assawompset Pond becomes unruly, and washes over the New Bedford-Middleboro Road in Lakeville" read the caption for this photograph published in the rotogravure supplement of the New Bedford Standard-Times during the 1940s. The surface of the lake, Massachusetts' largest natural body of water, is ever changeable varying from storm-swept turbulence like that above to an almost mirror-like calm. The home in the background later housed the Tamarack restaurant and is now the site of Tamarack Park on Bedford Street.
