Aby-a-Day – June 9: Orange line retro (Hipstamatic Monday)

Boston’s subway system, commonly called the T, has four main lines: Red, Blue, Green and Orange. The Orange line is known for its 1970’s decor; along with the orange exteriors, Orange line trains have fake woodgrain panelling inside the cars. And it hasn’t changed much in almost 30 years, either: check out this photo from 1986!

But Orange line trains are the perfect setting for Hipstamatic picures!

Especially if you’re lucky enough to get a car with upholstered seats.

All Jacoby needs is a leisure suit and some platform shoes, and he’d fit right in.

I wonder if the new Whitey Bulger film they’re filming around town right now needs any feline extras?
