Just found out about a current online auction of the recently closed Durgin Park memorabilia. There are over 200 items - some individually put up for sale (signs, pictures), some in larger lots (bean pots, beer taps, etc.)
Bidding is live right now; you can preview in person items this coming weekend (Feb. 16th and 17th) at the restaurant, and if you win, items are to be picked up on the 23rd and 24th of February. Bids are all over the place; some have been bid up; some are still languishing at $5.00 (although there’s no telling if someone’s put in a maximum bid until you make a bid).
There are photos of articles written about Durgin Park; letters from famous people; sports photos, recipes and staff photos, and old photos of Faneuil Hall. A lot of history here.
The Wooden Pig mentioned in the Boston.com article below is already up to $650.00.
