Latest in the series. Retired photographer Frank Siteman has taken photos of places downtown, and your job is to guess where they were taken.  

If you know the answer, send an email to editor@winchesternews.org and put How well in the subject line.  

Last time we had several winners. Michael Arwe, Michelle Prior, Laurie Russell, Marcie Troisi and Elisabeth Westner guessed it’s the façade of the Winchester Community Music School .

WCMS Director Laurie Russell wrote in her reply, “The photo is of one of the front entrance columns looking up to the teaching studios on the second floor.  The teaching studio in the photo is now teaching studio number 1, used primarily for teaching piano lessons and coaching chamber ensembles.  It once was a lovely bedroom, decorated for a little girl.  WCMS is the seventh owner of the property at 407 Highland Ave.  The most notable owner (before WCMS) was the family of actor and singer Frank Fontaine who regularly appeared on the Jackie Gleason Show and was an entertainer who toured nationally and appeared on several television variety shows from the 1940s-1960s.”

A graduate of Tufts, Frank has taught photography at many institutions and traveled the world to take photos for various publications.  His yard on Pond Street backs up to Horn Pond and he frequently displays nature photos on the Facebook Friends of Horn Pond group.  Check him out at https://franksiteman.com/work.
