SouthCoast Photo of the Month

This isn't exactly a Southcoast photo but, I came across this just a short walk away from Fenway Park in Boston. My first thought was what in the world is it. At a quick glance I had thought it was some prefab construction trailer. At second glance I realized it was made up of stacked shipping containers and finally I realized it was going to be a Puma Store.

This seems like a cross between a recycling project and a Frank Lloyd Wright design. I really this is actually a pretty cool concept and it makes me wonder how much these containers cost. Hmmm, a couple in the backyard my make pretty good offices for Blog Headquarters.

Are you an avid picture taker? Do you have a shot you're particularly proud of? Perhaps just a shot that you'd like to share? Submit it here for the SouthCoast Photo of the Month! Send submissions to

I've seen this sort of recycling more and more. From what I know about it, it started in Australia where they stack them into hillsides and terrace them out. Very cool concept if you ask me. Thanks for the picture Lefty.

That's Puma City. It's a temporary Puma Store and event center (they throw parties and other events). It was here (in Boston, anyway) a year ago over at Fan Pier. Very cool. a link about it

Providence has a more long-term example of this a ways down Atwells Avenue called Box Office 460 ( ). it really is kind of cool.
