The Dairy Dome + update

Many current North American pirate listeners will remember that Pirate Radio Boston was an excellent verifier and had a series of QSLs of scenes from the Boston area. One QSL that I received featured the Dairy Dome, a fitting QSL for someone who likes ice cream as much as I do. The Dairy Dome looked like an iconic place, with a gilded dome reminiscent of Middle Eastern architecture and columns throughout.

Unfortunately, the Dairy Dome was torn down today. I haven't looked up a history of the business or of the location yet, but my guess is that it's a bit like old Tiger Stadium; once the Tigers left, the stadium was torn down. Once PRB retired, the Dairy Dome held on for a year, but the final outcome was obvious.
