Who IS That Masked Woman?
No, she’s not a mannequin. I saw her strolling down Mass Ave a few blocks from my house in North Cambridge. I was intrigued by the mystery and anonymity afforded by the broad-brimmed hat and expansive mask. It was almost is if she was a modern day knight in armor protecting herself from the invisible rays of the sun and the invisible microbes that have turned the world upside down.
