  1. hello sir, i saw your pics, i am the director of the Facebook page Metro Fall River Fire Alerts, we cover all fire and emergency incidents within the Greater Fall River area. I would also like to point out that the body of water in the rear of the mill complex is not the Taunton River, it is however the South Watuppa Pond. I was also wondering if there would be any way that I could use your pictures on my site? I will be more than happy to give you full photo credits.

  2. Hi Chris,

    Those are photos from our family collection and were taken by my Dad. You are free to post them to your site but I would ask that you make sure to credit both myself and my Dad, Trevor & Michael James. I grew up in Somerset and we took photos at this mill fire back in 1987. When I mention Taunton River, I was specifically referring to Somerset being on the other side of Fall River from the Taunton River. But yes you are correct that the body of water in the photos is the South Watuppa Pond. Good catch.

    Again please credit us if you use the photos.
