From the Globe archives: Strollers on Boston Common

Globe file photo

Since Mother’s Day is this weekend, we take a look at children in the city. Spring had sprung
on April 28, 1942, as these mothers strolled with their babies for a walk on Boston Common.
A few pigeons followed along for some treats. See the full gallery here.
