ANNUAL REPORT 



PARK AND RECREATION DEPARTMENT 



FOE THE 



YEAR ENDING JANUARY 31, 1917. 



Boston, February 1, 1917. 

Hon. James M. Curley, 

Mayor of the City of Boston: 
Dear Sir, — - In compliance with the Revised Ordi- 
nances the Board of Park and R&Teation Commis- 
sioners herewith presents the annual report for the year 
1916-17. 

John H. Dillon, Chairman. 
Thomas F. Galvin. 
Robert S. Peabody. 



City Document No. 22. 



REPORT OF THE DEPUTY COMMISSIONER. 



To John H. Dillon, Thomas F. Galvin and 
Robert S. Peabody, Commissioners: 

Gentlemen, — I herewith submit a report of the work 
performed in the department under the direction of 
your Board during the year 1916. 

The new golf greens at Franklin Park, laid out and 
seeded during the previous year, were placed in condition 
for use in the middle of the summer and the remodeled 
course is quite satisfactory to golfers. 

There has been some mortality among the older 
trees in Long Crouch Woods and from thirty to forty 
oaks from 12 to 15 inches in diameter had to be removed. 
The same is true of the trees at Pine Bank, Olmsted 
Park, where many old ash trees were taken out, as 
they were completely ruined by borers. The destruc- 
tion caused by insect pests has been particularly noted 
among the American elms all over the city. 

In the plantations the crowding of young, vigorous 
trees is so great that there is great danger of losing 
much of the good results from the very excellent planting 
of the past twenty years. Many of the. trees have now 
reached the dignity of forest growth and must have 
room to expand further. At Franklin Park a number 
of these, approximately three or four hundred, have 
been marked and removed but there remains a great 
area yet untouched. 

The planting of Ronan Park was performed last 
autumn and not quite finished when the winter set in. 

Road Repairs. Early in the season the surface of 
some of the parkways and boulevards was in very rough 
condition and the long wet spring and early summer 
prevented repairs being made; however, before the 
winter closed in, the surface on all the main drives was in 
very good condition for travel, and work had been 
started on the side drives of Commonwealth avenue, 
Brighton. The usual treatment of tar and broken stone 
or of Tarvia and sand was used with good results. A 
bitulithic pavement was put down on Commonwealth 
avenue, from Arlington street to Beacon street, with the 



Park and Recreation Department. 3 

exception of that portion between Massachusetts avenue 
and Charlesgate West, and this permanent surface on the 
most traveled portion of our roadways will relieve our 
repair force of much responsibility and their time can 
be given to other needed road work. 

Playground work during the past year was carried on 
in the usual way, this department working in conjunc- 
tion with the School Department. The school instruct- 
ors took charge of the general activities of the boys 
and the very young children in the play corner. 

Moth destruction was pursued as usual by winter 
work and spraying. These last mentioned topics have 
been fully touched upon by assistants in charge of the 
various departments and need no repetition. 

Respectfully submitted, 

James B. Shea, 
Deputy Commissioner. 



City Document No. 22. 



REPORT OF GENERAL SUPERINTENDENT 
OF BATHS. 



To John H. Dillon, Thomas F. Galvin and Robeet 
S. Peabody, Commissioners: 

Gentlemen, — I beg to submit herewith my annual 
report of the activities and improvements accomplished 
in the recreation division of this department for the 
year 1916-17. 

The recreation division of this department, by the 
number and varieties of its activities, continues to enlist 
the patronage of the community for the twelve calendar 
months of the year. Indoor and outdoor recreation was 
indulged in by all sexes and ages throughout our eity. 
The department thereby furnishes an ideal recreation 
system for the proper indulgence in one's particular 
branch of sport which can be had in any month of the 
year. • 

The bath division of the department had its usual 
busy and successful year, and the succeeding years prove 
that Boston is exceptionally favored in beach area 
which provides unexcelled facilities for the bathing of its 
public during the summer season. 

Curtis Hall Building in Jamaica Plain is one whose 
character and facilities are recognized throughout the 
country as an ideal indoor recreation building, and its 
popularity is perhaps more widespread than any other 
building in the department. Its patronage is on an 
ever increasing large plane. 

Cabot Street Building. — During the year extensive 
improvements have been made in the swimming pool 
whereby the leaks which were giving considerable trouble 
for several years past have been eradicated by placing 
a layer of cement 3 inches thick under the bottom 
of the pool and otherwise strengthening the same; 
no leaks are now in evidence. The shower facilities 
in this building have been improved. 

Tyler Street Building. — Approximately eight hundred 
(800) children from the local schools bathe here each 
week in classes, in addition to the regular volume of 
patronage which frequents this house from the adjoin- 



Park and Recreation Department. 5 

ing district. The building is situated in a section 
where added patronage can be looked for each year, 
and the cosmopolitan character of the people furnishes 
excellent ground for educating them to the advantages 
of public baths and gymnasium work. Their appre- 
ciation is already shown to a great extent. 

D Street Gymnasium. — The isolated location of this 
gymnasium has been a barrier to its full development, 
especially since the opening of the new Broadway 
building. However, its classes have been uniformly 
good, although the general bathing patronage has been 
less. This building requires a new and more com- 
modious bathroom with new showers and equipment. 

Dover Street Bath. — ■ The shower system has been 
overhauled several times, but in order to put it in good 
condition it will require new valves as the nineteen years 
of service which these valves have given will not allow 
them to be further repaired. New cold water piping 
was installed last summer. The ceilings of the shower 
rooms and the side walls were whitened, and the 
machinery in the laundry was placed in thoroughly 
good repair last fall by installing new shafting and other 
parts where required. A new set tub for cleaning trunks 
was also installed; the new dryer, which was placed in 
operation last June, gave good service during the 
summer months. 

Ward 6 Building, Plympton Street. — The walls of the 
Ward 6 gymnasium were plastered in places and the 
ceilings and walls were painted. The shower and 
locker rooms were also placed in good condition by 
several applications of paint. The building is now in 
good condition. 

Broadway Building. — The two bathrooms provided 
in this building have been unusually well patronized, 
even for this section of the city. Thousands have 
recourse to the showers here in both the men's and 
women's departments and a large foreign element from 
the adjoining business sections have recourse to the 
showers in large numbers at least twice a week. 

North Bennet Street Bath. — This building is still a 
popular resort for all classes who reside in the North 
End of the city. Last year several repairs were made 
on the shower system; the doors on the lockers were 
repaired in the men's shower room; several minor 
repairs were made on the piping on the boilers of this 
building, and the walls and ceilings painted throughout. 



6 City Document No. 22. 

East Boston Gymnasium, Paris Street. — Extensive 
improvements were made on the East Boston gymna- 
sium and shower rooms during the past year. The 
gymnasium floor was entirely relaid and placed in a 
practically level and sound condition. The basket- 
ball court, which gave considerable trouble owing to its 
plastered ceilings, was considerably improved by instal- 
ling sheathing on the back and side walls and it now 
furnishes an excellent and most satisfactory handball 
and squash-ball court. A new catch-basin was installed 
at the end of the showers on the main floor to provide 
a receptacle for the excess overflow of the shower beds 
and a siphon now empties it at regular intervals. 

Ward 12 Building, Vine Street. — Since the opening of 
this building an ever increasing volume of patrons has 
been in evidence weekly. The gymnasium and shower 
rooms have grown tremendously in popularity and the 
volume of business indicates the widespread appreciation 
of the advantages given by this department in this 
district. 

Columbia Road Gymnasium, Dorchester. — Despite the 
exceedingly large numbers that have attended the 
Columbia Road gymnasia, showers and swimming pool 
in previous years, this building still continues to main- 
tain its popularity without any diminution in numbers. 
It caters to an exceedingly large area and its patrons to 
a great extent are members who have frequented this 
building since its opening. Repairs were made on the 
gymnasium apparatus and running track this past year, 
and the locks on the lockers were placed in good condition. 

Tenean Beach in Neponset is one of the most popular 
beaches in the city, as the class of patronage it demands 
is of a varied nature. The buildings here have outlived 
their usefulness long since and larger and far more 
commodious quarters should be provided for the people 
at this beach. 

Freeport Beach is well attended despite the rather 
inadequate facilities of the place. New sand should 
be placed on the beach this coming summer. 

Savin Hill. — The Savin Hill bath house and beach is 
a most popular resort throughout the summer months, 
as the patrons may use the playground and then enjoy 
a dip in the cooling waters of the bay. These buildings 
here, too, are far inadequate to meet the demand made 
upon them and we hope to see more pretentious and 
commodious quarters provided, which will serve both 



Park and Recreation Department. 7 

as a field house and bath house in the summer time and 
winter, and thereby provide an all-year-round center. 

McKenzie Beach. — Despite the rather uninviting 
surroundings of McKenzie Beach it has continued to 
attract many thousands to its cooling waters during the 
summer season. Its recent demolishment has become 
necessary owing to the extensive improvements which 
are being made along the Strandway, and the filling in, 
which has rendered its waters unfit to bathe in. 

L Street Bath, as ever, attracts thousands to its pleas- 
ant facilities all through the year. This past year has 
proven no exception and both the men's and women's 
departments have been just as popular as in years past. 
It would be advisable, as soon as possible, to change over 
some of the present locker rooms in the women's depart- 
ment to lockers, thereby providing additional facilities 
at a rate of about six to one. The handball court here 
is used continuously throughout the year by the summer 
bathers and brownies alike, and, if possible, another 
handball court should be made at the further end of 
the beach. 

North End Park. — The extensive improvements which 
have been made here during the past season, both in the 
playground and on the beach, will make this popular 
resort even more attractive to this densely settled dis- 
trict. The new cement sea wall has been an improve- 
ment long desirable and will add much to make this beach 
more attractive to its patrons who use it daily. The 
improvement which is now contemplated in the locker 
sections of both the men's and women's departments 
will be an added cause for further enjoyment and 
increased patronage this coming year. 

Dewey Beach in Charlestown is an inland beach which 
is exceedingly popular. The building which was com- 
pleted here two years ago has already outgrown its 
accommodations. It would be advisable this coming 
year, if possible, to construct a separate locker room for 
the boys on the men's side above the present lockers 
and similar to the locker rooms existing for the girls in 
the women's department. The beach here requires 
constant attention as the adjoining factories and wharves 
furnish much floating debris which collects on the beach. 
New sand should be provided here next year. 

Wood Island Park. — The beach here is another resort 
situated in an ideal recreation center — combining play- 
ground, gymnasium and beach activities. The accom- 



8 City Document No. 22. 

modations provided in the bath house, which was com- 
pleted here two years ago, are far inadequate and, if 
possible, new wings should be built onto the present 
building to provide facilities more nearly in keeping 
with the demand. The improvements which are going 
on in the adjoining waters, under the supervision of the 
Commission on Waterways and Public Lands, have in 
a measure hindered the full enjoyment of the beach owing 
to the murky condition of the waters at times. It is 
hoped that this year will see an improvement. The beach 
here should receive an allotment of 500 tons of sand this 
coming year. 

I would again recommend that whenever possible 
swimming pools should be made a part of every municipal 
building erected in Boston. They are just as necessary 
an adjunct of every municipal improvement as the school 
and gymnasium. By these improvements children could 
learn to swim in any month of the year, rather than 
have their effort confined to the short period of the open 
summer season. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Hugh C. McGrath, 
General Superintendent of Baths. 



Park and Recreation Department. 



REPORT OF PHYSICAL DIRECTOR. 



To John H. Dillon, Thomas F. Galvin and Robert 
S. Peabody, Commissioners: 

Gentlemen, — I herewith submit a report of the 
work and activities carried on under my supervision for 
the year ending January 31, 1917. 

We have ten gymnasia and three swimming pools (all 
of which, with one exception, are quartered in modern 
buildings) and I can best convey the character and 
aspect of the activities conducted within these units of 
public service by reporting on each gymnasium and 
pool respectively. 

Paris Street Gymnasium. 

This gymnasium, now in its twentieth year, was the 
first free public gymnasium in this country. It opened 
its doors March 4, 1897, under the control of the Park 
Department. 

At that time it was an old building, poorly equipped, 
and had been in use as a gymnasium by the East Boston 
Athletic Association. 

Mrs. Leonard Ahl, a Back Bay woman deeply inter- 
ested in physical education, had presented the land and 
building and equipment to this local organization with 
the provision that the upkeep was to be maintained by 
them. 

This they found themselves unable to do after a time, 
and when, at someone's instigation, the whole proposi- 
tion was offered to the City of Boston, the offer and 
responsibility were promptly accepted. 

It was a tremendous success from the beginning, and 
has continued so up to the present time. 

In 1910 the old building was razed, and a new, 
modern building erected, and at present this new struc- 
ture is nearer the ideal for a gymnasium and bath house 
than any building now controlled by this department. 

It has excellent equipment, more shower baths, the 
largest floor space, and the largest and best running 
track of any of our gymnasia, and from the viewpoint 
of efficiency and economy ranks first. 



10 City Document No. 22. 

All of the classes are very well attended, and it is one 
of the three largest in that respect. 

North Bennet Street Gymnasium. 

The adult classes at this gymnasium are fairly large; 
those for school boys and girls are very large. 

A new field of operation for municipal gymnastics was 
entered upon at this gymnasium during this year when 
a class of defective boys, numbering about one hundred, 
received special instruction along lines best adapted and 
suited to their mental and physical condition and needs. 

These boys were from the defective classes in the 
schools of the district, and their teachers report that 
their general condition, and particularly their mental 
condition, has been much improved by the experiment. 
The teachers are most enthusiastic over the results, 
which cannot be further dwelt upon until the work is in 
operation longer. 

Other local, social and civic centers in this district 
have been served in the gymnasium from time to time 
during the year in various ways. 

Charlestown. 

At this gymnasium, which is new, comparatively, and 
where conditions are generally very satisfactory, the 
classes, while not so tremendously large as at some 
other new gymnasia, are very regularly and satisfactorily 
attended by the same people, and the general average is 
good and made up of a good, solid constituency. 

This gymnasium serves a very large area, and is a long 
way from any other, and consequently its attendants are 
not of the transient type. 

South Boston. 

The D Street Gymnasium, like Charlestown, serves 
a very large district, and the classes are generally well 
attended. 

It is a splendid gymnasium, with light and air on four 
sides, and large floor space; but it is very poorly located, 
because it is so far from the main thoroughfare. 

A striking feature here is the large attendance at the 
boys' and girls' classes, for, when one considers the long 
distance which has to be traversed from their homes 
and schools to this isolated building, the results which 



Park and Recreation Department. 11 

would accrue if the gymnasium were more accessible to 
the main street are easy to conjure, and in the opinion 
of the writer of this report a main thoroughfare is the 
ideal location for a municipal gymnasium and public 
baths. 

Tyler Street. 

The attendance here is only fair, largely because of the 
nationality of the people of this section. They are 
mostly Greek and Armenian, and their response to the 
advantages we offer is not warm, because gymnastics 
is an almost unknown idea to them and because there is 
so little free time in their lives for recreation even of the 
most elemental type. 

The building, though modern, is poorly equipped, 
both as to gymnastic apparatus, arrangement of lockers 
and other facilities for accommodating large numbers. 

Harrison Avenue. 

This is one of the oldest gymnasia in the department 
and the only one now housed in an old building. The 
structure was formerly a church. 

The accommodations in the locker and bath rooms are 
so very different from those in the modern buildings on 
Tyler street and Vine street, both not far away, that 
many of the residents of the immediate district, who 
formerly attended this gymnasium, have transferred 
their allegiance to the newer and more attractive. 

The facilities for women, both for bathing and dressing, 
are almost impossible, and it has had a direct influence 
on the falling off of this portion of the class work and 
attendance. 

The children's classes still remain good. 

Cabot Street Gymnasium. 

The attendance is generally fair here at all classes and 
is better than it has been for three years. 

The apparatus and general equipment is in excellent 
condition. 

Cabot Street Swimming Pool. 

This is an excellent pool, has recently been put in 
first-class condition and is now perfectly tight. 

The attendance is very small and I believe the location 
of the building to be partly responsible for this. It is a 
considerable distance from the car line, and in the heart 



12 City Document No. 22. 

of a poor district, and the small nominal fee which is 
charged to help defray the large financial upkeep of this 
pool seems to be an added reason for the light attendance. 

Curtis Hall Gymnasium. 

This gymnasium is perfectly located on the car line 
in a fine residential district and the building has a glass 
roof and light and air on four sides. 

There is a fine running track and immense floor space ; 
the equipment is first class and the accommodations in 
the locker and shower rooms are of the best. 

All the classes are very well attended and with the 
possible exception of Columbia Road it stands first in 
rank in this respect. 

Curtis Hall Swimming Pool. 

One of the finest pools in the state is located in this 
building and it has a splendid and ever increasing 
attendance as a tribute to this fact. 

More women and girls attend this pool than either of 
the other two pools conducted by this department and 
this is due to the excellent accommodations in the dress- 
ing rooms. 

Vine Street. 

This gymnasium is the latest acquisition to our chain 
(now nearly covering every section) and has the desired 
location on a car line in a residential community. 

It is perfectly lighted and ventilated, has immense 
floor space, a fine track and all modern equipment. 

There is an excellent attendance at all the classes and 
it only needs time to bring it to the front ranks. 

Columbia Road Gymnasium. 

A rival for first place with Curtis Hall, located on a 
boulevard and car line and in an exceptional community, 
this gymnasium has never waned in its popularity since 
it was opened. 

During its thirteen years of existence the attendance 
at many of the classes, for the major portion of the 
season, has been limited only by the floor space and at 
times an extra room (built for a handball court) adjoin- 
ing the gymnasium has been pressed into service to 
accommodate the overflow, and a second class with 
another instructor and pianist was conducted simul- 
taneously. 



Park and Recreation Department. 13 

While the equipment is in fairly good condition it is 
beginning to show evidences of its thirteen strenuous 
years of service. 

Columbia Road Swimming Pool. 

The pool in this building while small and inadequate 
is still very popular and well attended, especially by 
women, boys and girls. It does not appeal to men very 
strongly because of its size and the shallow depth of 
water. 

It is in good condition and the accommodations are 
fairly good. 

The total attendance for the present year is almost 
double that of either of the three preceding years, the 
most marked improvement being in the schoolgirls' and 
ladies' evening classes. This, I believe to be due in 
great measure to the fact that music is again lending its 
aid to the gymnasium class work. It is an indispenable 
aid, a necessity as well as a desirability, and the response 
which has followed its re-establishment is a testimonial 
to its real factorship in this line of gymnastic activity. 

The usual work in preparing applicants for civil 
service examinations is being carried on as in former 
years. 

In conclusion, I would say that general conditions — 
attendance, equipment and apparatus — are in satis- 
factory condition and that I am indebted to the instruct- 
ors in charge of the various gymnasia and swimming 
pools for their hearty cooperation and good work. 

Respectfully submitted, 

James L. Walsh, 
Physical Director. 



14 City Document No. 22. 



REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF STREET 
TREES AND MOTH WORK. 



To John H. Dillon, Thomas F. Galvin and Robert 
S. PeAbody, Commissioners: 

Gentlemen, — Herewith I beg to present a report of 
the street tree and moth suppression work performed 
under my supervision during the fiscal year ending 
January 31, 1917; also recommendations for future 
work and required improvements. 

It is gratifying to be able to state that the street trees, 
having received more than the usual amount of care and 
attention, are in a better condition at the present time 
than has been evident for years, although still in an 
unsatisfactory state because of adverse city conditions 
increasing and the prevalence of noxious insects. 

We have over 22,000 shade trees in the public streets, 
of which number 5,500 are young trees, principally 
European lindens, English elms, pin oaks and Oriental 
planes, and their upkeep is an important item. 

In the course of the general maintenance work 187 
trees, chiefly elms, were removed, dead from ravages of 
the leopard borer and elm-bark beetle, pests which cannot 
be otherwise subdued without a prohibitive expenditure 
of money. All the young trees were pruned in the winter 
and early spring and are now in excellent condition. One 
thousand four hundred and eighty-four other trees in all 
sections of the city were also trimmed. 

Have undertaken to trim the trees in all the principal 
streets and by the end of next year this task will be 
completed. 

Along the Strandway in South Boston, upon direct 
order from Chairman Dillon, Ginkgo trees have been 
planted and are doing exceptionally well; they do not 
seem to experience any ill effects from proximity to the 
salt water. 

The planting of shade trees in our public streets should 
be regarded as one of our most essential civic duties 
and continued as far as possible every year. In this 
connection I would cordially recommend that Columbus 
avenue and Hyde Park avenue be. thus adorned without 



Paek and Recreation Department. 15 

delay. We have received numerous requests and peti- 
tions for tree plantations on both avenues, but special 
funds must be supplied for the purpose as it is impossible 
to do new work under the ordinary maintenance appro- 
priation. 

Tree guards throughout the department should be 
largely replenished. I would recommend electrically 
welded wire guards, although more costly, as I am satis- 
fied that the extra protection to the trees which they will 
afford and the greater durability of the material of which 
they are made will more than compensate for the 
additional expense. 

The gypsy and brown-tail moth suppression work, 
public and private, has been very successful. During the 
past year we have covered the entire city on destruction 
and spray work, treating over 18,000 private estates, con- 
serving our forces and means so prudently that we have 
succeeded in reducing the average assessment thereon 
from $2.34 in 1909 to 82 cents in 1916. All public 
trees in streets, parks, squares, public lands and city 
yards received due attention and are free from these 
pests, but, unfortunately, are not so lucky as far as other 
pernicious moths are concerned. 

Brown-tail infestation has been practically eliminated 
throughout the city and weather conditions probably 
assisted us materially in this respect for the past two 
years. 

Gypsy infestation is considerably lessened in some 
sections, notably in Roxbury, South Boston, Charles- 
town and East Boston, where it is almost wiped out. 

Dorchester at the present time is in fine condition. 

Infestation in the Hyde Park district is about 50 
per cent less than when annexed to Boston, although still 
bad in some places. 

The West Roxbury woodland section is in good con- 
dition as compared with the state it was in three years 
ago. _ 

Brighton, especially the Aberdeen section, is in very 
good condition. 

By persistently creosoting the gypsy and removing 
the brown-tail nests for a few more years it is hoped 
that we may be able to discontinue the destruction or 
winter work, which is very disagreeable and costly. 

Am pleased to record the fact that the elm-leaf beetle 
is under control; no elm trees in the city have been 
defoliated for the past two years. 



16 City Document No. 22. 

Ravages of the leopard borer and elm-bark beetle 
are of sufficient extent to cause much anxiety, as it is 
almost impossible to control them even at great expense. 
According to their habit they work interiorly, thoroughly 
and so insidiously that the substance or life-giving sap 
of the tree has been interrupted destructively before 
their presence has been detected. Exterior indications 
are so slight as not to be observed by a casual examina- 
tion. All we can do effectively is to watch and protect 
the young trees assiduously. 

The Oriental moth caused some damage in the Dor- 
chester district during the past summer, but the section 
has been inspected and shall be thoroughly sprayed for 
same this season. 

As for the white pine blister disease, which is causing 
more or less anxiety throughout the country, Boston 
has not yet been visited to my knowledge. In the 
months of September and October I looked all over the 
city very carefully and failed to discover any signs of it. 
The city is to be congratulated on this fact as the effects 
of this disease are so injurious that it would be necessary 
to destroy every infested white pine tree, currant and 
gooseberry bush in order to stop its spread. 

In closing, I desire to extend my thanks to Professor 
Rane, State Forester, for his valuable assistance, advice 
and unfailing courtesy at all times.

REPORT OF THE CURATOR OF THE ZOOLOGI- 
CAL GARDEN AND AQUARIUM. 



To John H. Dillon, Thomas F. Galvin and Robert 

S. Peabody, Commissioners: 

Gentlemen, — I herewith submit the following report 
for the Zoological Garden for the year ending February 
1, 1917. 

The past year has been a busy one, and many changes 
were made in different parts of the garden, which will 
be of much benefit to the birds and animals. 

Elk Range. 

A new house was erected for the elk, floors laid in 
all the other houses and loam spread so that now the 
range is in fairly good condition. 

Temporary Quarters. 
This house has been given a general overhauling, new 
cages have been built, all the cages raised from the 
floor, telephone and electric lights installed and new 
signs placed over cages. 

Pond and Flying Cage. 

Here many changes have been made which add to the 
beauty of the place; sprays have been installed, which 
are running all the time, keeping the water fresh and 
clean; during the winter evergreen trees were placed 
in the flying cage for the protection of the birds. 

This winter the Overlook Building was used as in 
former years for housing the warm climate birds. 

Bird House. 
Most of this house was painted, frames on some of 
the cages made stronger, and changes made in the heat- 
ing and lighting system. 

Elephant House. 
The elephants are in fine condition, and judging 
from the attendance at the performances held on 
Wed^~«day and Saturday of each week they are just as 
popular.

Bear Dens. 

Conditions are all that could be desired, the dens 
have recently been painted and new shutters installed. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Anthony W. McNealy, 

Curator. 



Mr. John H. Dillon, 

Chairman Park and Recreation Commission: 
Dear Sir, — I herewith submit the following report 
for the Aquarium, year ending: February 1, 1917. 

The past year was a most successful one, the death 
rate being the lowest in the history of the house. The 
attendance for the year reached the million mark, 
1,019,909 people visiting the Aquarium, coming from 
all parts of the country and Canada. 

Several changes were made during the year, the 
most important being the resetting in cement of the glass 
in the salt water exhibition tanks, which will prevent 
rust forming that in the past has been a detriment to 
the fish, a new set of fire grates in number 2 boiler and 
new glass set in some of the exhibition tanks. 

Very truly yours, 

Anthony W. McNealy, 

Curator.
