Go North via routes 24/128, I-93 and 3/3A. Take I-93 to the Southeast

Tunnel." You will be turning RIGHT to enter tunnel. Go up the
ramp and take a left as you come out onto the highway. About a mile
ahead you will see Holiday Inn on the right. Take RIGHT at lights.
Signs say Winthrop. Go straight another mile or so, through Orient
Heights (cars parked diagonally in business area). Keep going
straight, take no turns, go over the bridge, pass Osco Drug on your
left. Take sharp right at 3rd light (Winthrop St.). Library is
about 1/6 mile ahead on right.

through Saugus, where you will see Route 60 East sign. Take that
exit, go 3/4 around rotary being careful not to take the Route 1
ramp on the extreme right of the rotary. Instead, bear a little
left up onto Squire Road - Sid Green's Dinette store is on

Keep going until the next rotary which you will go 1/2 way around -
