The Dixey Collection: Here comes the honey wagon

The Marblehead Current is proud to partner with photographer and historian Dan Dixey, who regularly shares photos of Marblehead from his extensive collection, along with information about each shot.

The B.F. Martin Jr. cesspool pumper, known as the honey wagon, makes its rounds at Green Street and Lincoln Avenue circa 1912. This photo is from the original glass negative taken by photographer Fred Litchman. Litchman snapped photos in Marblehead from the 1890s through the 1940s.
